339.362 1KV Jolevski

This course goes through modern cloud native software development approaches with practical hands-on examples. We will cover an introduction to microservices (with Golang) and an overview of the current CNCF landscape (Cloud Native Computing Foundation).
Topics will include: container orchestration with Kubernetes, Service registration and discovery, Service meshes, Routing, Service-to-service calls, Load balancing, Circuit Breakers, Distributed messaging. All main CNCF cloud projects will be introduced so students will have overview and outlook of main CNCF projects like: Kubernetes, Argo CI/CD, Flux, Traefik Proxy (Ingress), Traefik Mesh, Envoy, Consul, Linkerd, Certificate Manager, Etcd, Rook, etc We will address the steep learning curve that exists in the CNCF adoption and the best way to overcome it.
The students will be exposed to how to build and maintain cloud native infrastructure, with examples How Netflix microservice infrastructure functions and scales to support millions of users.
