Developers with the ability to operate, troubleshoot, and monitor applications in Kubernetes are in high demand today. To meet this need, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation created a certification exam to establish a developer's credibility and value in the job market to work in a Kubernetes environment.
The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) exam is different from the typical multiple-choice format of other certifications. Instead, the CKAD is a performance-based exam that requires deep knowledge of the tasks under immense time pressure.
This study guide walks you through all the topics you need to fully prepare for the exam. Author Benjamin Muschko also shares his personal experience with preparing for all aspects of the exam.
- Learn when and how to apply Kubernetes concepts to manage an application
- Understand the objectives, abilities, tips, and tricks needed to pass the CKAD exam
- Explore the ins and outs of the kubectl command-line tool
- Demonstrate competency for performing the responsibilities of a Kubernetes application developer
- Solve real-world Kubernetes problems in a hands-on command-line environment
- Navigate and solve questions during the CKAD exam

About the Technology
Gradle is a general-purpose build automation tool. It extends the usage patterns established by its forerunners, Ant and Maven, and allows builds that are expressive, maintainable, and easy to understand. Using a flexible Groovy-based DSL, Gradle provides declarative and extendable language elements that let you model your project's needs the way you want.
