Before starting this course, you should be familiar with:

  • Basic Linux concepts and using the command line – we recommend the free Introduction to Linux (LSF101) course
  • Kubernetes fundamentals and Kubernetes CLI – we recommend the free Introduction to Kubernetes (LFS158) course
  • A basic introduction to Istio – we recommend the free Introduction to Istio (LFS144) course

For hands-on exercises, access to a Kubernetes cluster is required.

You should be able to complete the lab exercises with a Kubernetes cluster from cloud providers like GCP, AWS, Azure, or Oracle OCI. Some cloud providers offer free tiers or credits, but you may incur charges if you exceed the initially allocated cloud provider credits, or if the cloud provider’s terms and conditions change.
