The KCNA Book

Overview of this book

There is a huge benefit in building small, specialized, single-purpose apps that can self-heal, auto scale, and update regularly without needing downtime. Kubernetes and cloud-native technologies come in handy in building such apps. Possessing the knowledge and skills to leverage Kubernetes can positively enhance possibilities in favor of architects who specialize in cloud-native microservices applications. ‘The KCNA Book’ is designed to help those working in technology with a passion to become certified in the Kubernetes and Cloud-Native Associate Exam. You will learn about containerization, microservices, and cloud-native architecture. You will learn about Kubernetes fundamentals and container orchestration. The book also sheds light on cloud-native application delivery and observability. It focuses on the KCNA exam domains and competencies, which can be applied to the sample test included in the book. Put your knowledge to the test and enhance your skills with the all-encompassing topic coverage. Upon completion, you will begin your journey to get the best roles, projects, and organizations with this exam-oriented book.

I have two other best-selling Kubernetes-related books that you’ll love:

  • Quick Start Kubernetes
  • The Kubernetes Book

Both are available on Amazon, Leanpub, and many other reputable publishers.

Quick Start Kubernetes is aimed at people that are new to Kubernetes. It’s only ~100 long and explains Kubernetes from the ground-up with really easy hands-on examples. In 100 pages you’ll build a Kubernetes cluster, deploy a simple app, break it and watch Kubernetes self-heal it, scale it, and perform a rolling update. When you’re done, you’ll be all-good with the basics of Kubernetes.

The Kubernetes Book is an entirely different beast. It covers a lot more and goes into a lot more detail. It’s regularly listed as a best-seller.

Both books are updated annually to make sure they’re up-to-date with the latest versions of Kubernetes and the latest trends in the cloud native ecosystem.
