About the author

OK, so I’m Nigel and I’ve trained over one million people on cloud and container technologies. I’ve authored several best-selling books and video training courses and dedicated my working life to helping people take their first steps with containers and Kubernetes. I’m also passionate about explaining things as clearly as possible so that you love my books and videos.

I actually wrote this entire book in draft form, took the exam, then came back and finely tuned the content to better prepare you for the exam. I considered failing the exam and re-taking it multiple times to get an even better feel for the style of questions and levels of detail being tested. However, that felt wrong and I wanted to get the book into your hands as quickly as possible.

I’d love to connect and would love to hear about your exam experience. You can reach me at all of the following:
