In the modern world of technology, containerization and cloud-native infrastructure have become the norm, and Kubernetes is the de-facto standard. In 2022, 16% of organizations worldwide reported that containerization plays a strategic role in their company today. Additionally, 48% of organizations stated that their company would adopt containerization within the next 18 months, up from 42% in 2021.

Due to this emerging trend, it’s crucial for anyone working in the cloud-native space or with modern data platforms to understand the Kubernetes language.

Over the last decade, the Kubernetes adoption rate has steadily increased, but in 2020 Kubernetes became even more widely used as the pace of technological advancement accelerated with the pandemic. Kubernetes has become the orchestration point for containerized workloads, giving developers more control over their applications and providing a platform-agnostic way to manage them.

A World of Modern Platforms

In the early days of applications, platforms dictated where the app would live, and developers knew they had to write for a Windows application or a LAMP stack with Linux. Businesses knew they had to host on a Windows or Linux server. Now, Kubernetes is an orchestration point for containerized workloads, enabling developers to control an application's location and providing a modern platform and framework for scalability, security, deployment, and management of an application in various clusters.

Retail, higher education and banking organizations – and especially startups – are leveraging the power of Kubernetes and containerization. The greatest potential barrier? Acquiring the level of proficiency that only hands-on immersion can achieve. No matter what type of developer, platform owner, or infrastructure admin is using Kubernetes, immersing yourself in the technology during an actual project is the best way to learn how to use it.

Learning the Basics

One of the best ways to become proficient in containerization is through hands-on learning. Here are 4 tips to getting started:

  • Get started with learning Kubernetes terminology, such as pods, deployment, services, ingress, security and namespaces. Once you have a solid understanding of these building blocks, you can progress to learning more advanced topics and experimenting with more complex deployments and configurations.
  • Practice deploying and managing applications and clusters using the CLI controller kubectl using different approaches to achieve the same outcome.
  • Become familiar with the Kubernetes API by exploring its documentation, experimenting with other actions, and trying various Kubernetes tools and extensions to enhance the experience and streamline the workflow.
  • Check out the wide variety of available resources, tutorials and walkthroughs that can help you learn Kubernetes and gain a deeper understanding of the platform and containerization in general.
