Kubernetes has surged in popularity in recent years. Several Kubernetes resources, such as pods, services, deployments, and replica sets, must be defined and managed when deploying an application on Kubernetes. Each of these necessitates the creation of a set of YAML manifest files. Maintaining multiple manifest files for each of these resources becomes problematic in the context of complicated application deployment. Furthermore, generating manifest files and supplying configuration options externally might be critical in allowing deployments to be customized. Other essential considerations include dependency management and version control.

This is where Helm comes to the rescue.

Helm is a Kubernetes package manager similar to NPM or YARN. It’s not only a Package Manager, though; it’s also a Kubernetes Deployment Management. To put it another way, instead of needing to declare numerous Kubernetes resources to deploy an application, Helm allows you to simply execute a few commands in the terminal and press enter, and you’re done!

Helm is crucial in automating the process of installing, configuring, and upgrading complicated Kubernetes applications in this case. Helm employs a chart-based packing system. A chart is a group of files that explain a set of Kubernetes resources that are connected.

Practice! Practice! Practice!

Lectures alone won’t help, in this video, you will learn from various demos shown in lectures and hands-on labs.

You will be given a challenge to solve using the Helm skills you have learned.

I'm not a security specialist, but I have realized that the course explains very well every topic and you can use the labs in every lesson to practice. It's a hard certification but using this course I could learn every element step by step and test myself if I was ready using the exam simulators, and I was great because the simulators are very close to a real exam! using this course I got the certification in my first attempt!

Thank you so much Mumshad Mannambeth for the awesome course, I couldn't find better than yours. These courses are well designed with awesome practice labs and have more than the required content to learn and pass the Kubernetes exams. Not sure how you are managing them with these much of low cost.
