Red Hat is adding two new learning modules to the Kube By Example curriculum. The modules teach cloud-native developers to integrate more applications into the Kubernetes infrastructure.
Red Hat has been sponsoring Kube By Example since 2017. The new modules bring the total offering to 19, covering both basic skills and specific applications. Users can go through the curriculum at their own pace. A blog post made by Red Hat’s VP and GM of Developer Tools and Programs Mithun T. Dhar details the additions.
The KubeVirt project was founded in 2019 to teach users how to run virtual machines alongside containerized applications within a Kubernetes infrastructure. Within a Kubernetes cluster, applications are integrated by placing them in a “container”: this isolates the files needed to run a program and makes it easier to launch on an individual PC. In many ways, this approach can be seen as the successor to virtual machines (VMs), in which another system is emulated on a PC. Containerizing is more efficient than VM applications, but is not possible in some cases. KubeVirt therefore exists to enable integration between such applications and the existing Kubernetes platform.
