Summary

Containers are revolutionizing the way we build, ship, and run our applications. But like all good things, they come with their own set of challenges. This is where Kubernetes enters the scene.

Kubernetes helps you deploy and manage containerized applications at scale. It also abstracts the many different underlying cloud platforms so that you don't need to care whether you're deploying on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or your own on-premises datacenter. With Kubernetes, you can develop your applications on your laptop, deploy to your chosen cloud platform, migrate to a different cloud platform, and even migrate to your private cloud at your on-premises datacenter.

This audio version of The Kubernetes Book starts from the beginning and covers everything you need to know to be proficient with Kubernetes. It even includes two sections dedicated to threat-modeling Kubernetes and real-world security.

You'll learn:

  • Kubernetes cluster architecture
  • How to build Kubernetes Clusters
  • How to deploy and manage applications on Kubernetes
  • How to secure Kubernetes
  • The meaning of terms like cloud-native, microservices, desired state, containerized, and more...

Easy listen for a technical subject.

I thought the approach to dealing with a very broad and technical subject great.

Ideal for those who want to get a quick start introduction to the K8S and then be taken quickly through main components with just the right technical detail for an audio book.

A K8s Must Have! Great content!

I've read the Quick Start Kubernetes by Nigel and thought it was very clear and easy to follow. This audio book builds on the Quick Start and is another enjoyable learning session. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn Kubernetes.

Super Engaging Overview of Kubernetes

Really enjoyed this overview of Kubernetes. Nigel's narration of the book is really engaging and he has adapted it well for an audiobook. I will be looking out for more of his audiobooks :)

Really good overview of Kubernetes

Nigel has put a lot of effort in to make this technical book work as an audio book! It really paid off, thanks for the effort.

Finally a technical book for Audible

This book was reworded to add value as an Audible book. Not that I've listened to a lot of technical books from Audible...maybe 10 books. All of the other technical books I've listened to regurgitate word-for-word what the author wrote. It becomes pretty annoying when the narrator reads the hash of a container verbatim.

Nigel Poulton made this book a verbal learning tool. AND he definitely knows his subject matter.

The book was just deep enough to provide a newbie with pieces of the K8s technology to form a solid foundation to work from.

Works surprisingly well

I didn't think these kinds of technical books would work in this format (audio) but the writer is a really good talker and changes enough things from the book to work better in an audio book. You probably would still want a real book if you wanted to better follow along and practice yourself, but if you go into it just wanting to learn the architecture of the system and learn the different concepts then it is great. From knowing almost nothing about K8 I now know most of the concepts, have an idea about how one would design and set up a project in it and most importantly are familiar with the keywords needed of to search for for more information and learn more when I need it.

Best possible audiobook result

Great audiobook. For me, I wanted a recap of some basics and touch on the complex. If I wanted more I'd dive into the hard cover or one of the deeper dive books. This is excellent for someone familiar with thr content, but relatively new. Nigel is an adept narrator. I've enjoyed his content on pkuralsight in the past and seeing he had an audiobook I knew I would enjoy for a cheap price tag compared to most books in general let alone cutting edge tech. In case you ever read this Nigel thanks so much for all the content over the years.

Perfect for listening on a long vacation drive

This is the perfect book for someone looking for a deeper understanding of all the different Kubernetees components during a daily commute or long drive. it does a good job at explaining the important security measures to take as an admin or architect.

Epic intro to K8s!

Nigel really knows its stuff. Reading this book has been a pleasure from the beginning to the end. If you want to dive into K8s, do yourself a favor and learn tons of relevant stuff in this book. Specially interesting is the coverage of practical information security.
Besides, the reference to Skippy the Magnificent was priceless!

This should be presented as a case study!

Nigel! Well done, Initially I was very sceptical about whether this bing be worth my while... Your audio book could be presented as a case study on how to make a technical book really work well as an audio book. I appreciate the thought that you have given this. I was driving as I listened and I could "see" the concepts in my mind.

I would like to have a PDF with the diagrams and a Table of Content for later reference. You should also include links to the repos and other resources you reference in the book as part of the PDF. This is a small issue but it very negatively affects the user experience.

this stuff doesn't really designed to be narrated

kubernetes is designed upon configuration yaml files that doesn't transfered well in a narration.
waste of money
