Offered on the learning platform the new online course explores use cases and applications of Kubernetes at the edge.

SAN FRANCISCO May 4 2021 The Linux Foundation the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source and Cloud Native Computing Foundation CNCF which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software today at KubeCon CloudNativeCon Europe Virtual announced the availability of a new online training course on the online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT. The course Introduction to Kubernetes on Edge with K3s LFS156x takes a deep dive into the use cases and applications of Kubernetes at the edge using examples labs and a technical overview of the K3s project and the cloud native edge ecosystem.

In this 15 hour course participants will learn the use cases for running compute in edge locations and about various supporting projects and foundations such as LF Edge and CNCF. The course covers how to deploy applications to the edge with open source tools such as K3s and k3sup and how those tools can be applied to low-power hardware such as the Raspberry Pi. Students will learn the challenges associated with edge compute such as partial availability and the need for remote access. Through practical examples students will gain experience of deploying applications to Kubernetes and get hands-on with object storage MQTT and OpenFaaS. It also introduces the fleet management and GitOps models of deployment and helps the student understand messaging and how to interface with sensors and real hardware.
