Live Training Courses

Live Training Courses are available at O’Reilly with a subscription. The advantage of live training courses is that the learning in the live courses can be a little bit more up-to-date in comparison to recorded video courses. When changes are introduced in Kubernetes software, the live course will cover this topic with accurate information.

Normally the live training courses are fast-paced. On the other hand, there is live interaction so you can ask questions during the training and the teaching can be adapted to your needs – to a certain extent.
