Our students work at..


This is an introductory course for Kustomize, a Kubernetes configuration management tool.

Kustomize provides developers a declarative way to create variations in their Kubernetes configs by creating overlays. By using these overlays a list of changes/modifications can be applied to the base configuration. A layered solution like this can be leveraged, the original base configuration can remain untouched.

Kustomise is most beneficial when working with multiple environments with unique config requirements.It can accommodate these easily by creating a separate overlay for each environment.

Kustomize makes use of YAML artifacts instead of a templating syntax for the overlays. This is why the configurations remain readable and the overlays look and behave like traditional Kubernetes configs.

What you will learn:

  • What is Kustomize?
  • Kustomize installation
  • Basics of Kustomize
  • Transformers
  • Patches
  • Overlays
  • Components
  • Secret/Config Generator
  • Imperative commands

Practice, Practice, Practice!!!

Lectures alone won’t give you the skills you need to make it as a DevOps engineer. In this course, you will learn by doing. Each exercise will help you make sure you have truly mastered the concepts and will help you have the confidence to apply your Kustomize knowledge in real-world situations.

What are the prerequisites:

  • Basic Kubernetes knowledge is required
  • Familiarity with pods, deployments and services
