really great course with much in depth knowledge transfer

Good course. A bit short and the authentication demos did not work for me.

All the content in this course is very relevant, but in 2019 looks like this one here needs some revamping, but still, very useful for people who's working with Kubernetes on a daily basis.

Ist ok, einfach nicht sehr inspirierend - unter anderem ist die monotone Art zu Sprechen des Trainers nicht hilfreich. Von einem "advanced" Kurs htte ich auch mehr best practises erwartet.Und dann wird im Kurs das zwei Jahre alte Kubernetes 1.7 verwendet - jetzt sind wir bei 1.16, da wre ein Update angebracht.Allgemein ist der Kurs sehr Cloud-fokussiert. Das ist gut wenn man das braucht. Fr On-Prem Deployments ist das weniger hilfreich.

I really appreciate the extended explanation of what's available commercially vs. Opensource

Decent but not as good as the main kubernetes course in terms of valueJob resource and scheduling are simple topics and should have been in the main courseLogging is interesting but package management and RBAC are already covered in the main course and i think the Linkerd, Federation and Monitoring topics were pretty meh especially since istio has a somewhat similarWell anyway, Edward's courses are overall great but this one just has a bit less value in term of contents compared to other ones. If you want to discover more use cases, go ahead, otherwise the main course will be enough to know most of what you need

It's better to have a detailed workflow diagram (as shown in linkerd section) for the example being discussed before each topic, instead of just executing commands for deployments. This helps in understanding the concepts better when multiple resources are interacting with each other. It's very easy to lose track by just watching the commands.

It was not helpfull for me. As experienced guy i was waiting for something more complex. Looks like we dont have such course in udemy. You course was last try :)But thank you very much for that lection! It will be realy helpfull for other guys

Edward, fantastic sessions. Very much worth my time. Thank you!

spinnaker videos need to be updated

Course content was very basic and skimmed over things too quickly. Mostly was just running commands and very little explaining and concepts. Not an advanced course by any means, barely an intermediate one.
