Course Leader: Ondrej Sika

A little bit of background about myself, I am a software engineer at Slush Pool and DevOps consultant, architect & lecturer. I have trained Kubernetes in firms like CGI or Webglobe - Yergeon. I am specialised mostly in Docker training which is closely related to Kubernetes. I use Kubernetes as a platform for most of my projects. It is one of the simplest ways of running Docker containers.

Get in touch if you have any questions - happy hearing from you!

Ondrej was with us for three days to introduce us to Docker. Subsequently, we moved onto Kubernetes - from installation to application preview. The training fulfilled our expectations.
