What other participants of the Kubernetes course say

Ultra Tendency’s Kubernetes course was a great experience for me! The combination of theory, live demos and practical exercises helped me to really understand the basics of container management and cluster configuration.
I was particularly impressed by the hands-on approach, which allowed me to actively develop my skills.

The trainers were competent and always available to answer questions. The learning atmosphere was motivating and enjoyable.
Overall, I can recommend Ultra Tendency’s Kubernetes course to anyone who wants to develop their skills in this area.
I am very satisfied and look forward to applying what I have learned.

– Oliver Manteufel

Well, who would have thought that I would have so much fun in a Kubernetes course?
Ultra Tendency really nailed it!
Sure, it was about container management and cluster configuration, but hey, the live demos and hands-on exercises made it really entertaining.

The trainers were great, even if they sometimes got so nerdy that I thought we had landed in Silicon Valley.
But well, they knew their stuff and answered every question, even the craziest ones.
The learning atmosphere was relaxed, but I swear if I hear the word “container” one more time I’m going to go crazy.

Seriously, I really learned something and was able to apply what I learned in the exercises right away.
So, if you’re ready to dive into the world of Kubernetes and meet some nerds who love talking about containers, then this course is for you.
I enjoyed it, even if I’m dreaming about containers now.
