This training plan offers a balanced mix of theoretical understanding and hands-on practice to effectively learn and implement containerization, Kubernetes, and ArgoCD with GitOps.

# Day 1. Introduction to Containers and Kubernetes

Presentation: Containers and Kubernetes

  • Virtualization and Containerization: Learn the differences between Virtual Machines (VMs) and containers, and how containers provide lightweight, portable environments.
  • Kubernetes Architecture: Understand the core components of Kubernetes, including Pods, Deployments, Services, ConfigMaps, Secrets, and Namespaces.

Hands-on: Containers 101

  • Basic Commands: Start with fundamental commands to run, stop, and manage containers using Docker. Understand container lifecycle management and troubleshooting techniques.
  • Building and Managing Images: Learn to create Dockerfiles to build custom images. Explore image management including pulling, tagging, and pushing images to a registry.
  • Container Networking: Dive into networking concepts for containers, including setting up bridge networks, exposing ports, and linking containers.
  • Volume Management: Understand how to use volumes for persistent storage, and manage data within and between containers.

Hands-on: Kubernetes 101

  • Interacting with Kubernetes: Use kubectl to interact with the Kubernetes API server. Practice commands to create, update, and delete resources.
  • Deploying Applications: Learn to deploy applications using Pods and Deployments. Understand rolling updates and scaling applications.
  • Configuration Management: Use ConfigMaps and Secrets to manage configuration data and sensitive information for applications.
  • Service Discovery and Networking: Explore Kubernetes services for load balancing and service discovery. Configure Ingress for managing external access.
  • Namespace Management: Organize resources using namespaces to create virtual clusters within a physical Kubernetes cluster. Understand resource quotas and limits.

# Day 2. Introduction to ArgoCD and GitOps

Presentation: ArgoCD and GitOps

  • Overview of ArgoCD and GitOps: Learn how ArgoCD implements GitOps for continuous delivery in Kubernetes, ensuring the live state matches the desired state as defined in Git repositories.

Hands-on: Installation of ArgoCD

  • Setting Up ArgoCD: Install and configure ArgoCD on a Kubernetes cluster, and set up user permissions.

Hands-on: Preparation of a Git Repository

  • Repository Setup: Organize and manage Kubernetes manifest files in a Git repository.

Hands-on: Create Applications in ArgoCD

  • Application Management: Create ArgoCD applications, sync them with the repository, and monitor changes to ensure applications are up-to-date.

# Detailed Learning Objectives

Containers and Kubernetes:

  • Master virtualization and containerization.
  • Set up SSH authentication for Git repository management.
  • Manage Kubernetes resources using manifest files.
  • Deploy and manage containerized applications in Kubernetes.

ArgoCD and GitOps:

  • Understand GitOps principles and benefits.
  • Use ArgoCD for continuous delivery in Kubernetes.
  • Install and configure ArgoCD, and manage repositories and applications.
