Three hours of hands-on demonstrations explaining the details of Amazon EKS that shows the power and ease of running and integrating applications on Kubernetes in AWS.
Hands-On Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS): Running Microservices LiveLessons gives a demo-driven overview of running Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services. The course covers not only the basics of Kubernetes, but also gets into the creation of EKS clusters and running real workflows on the cluster. The course shows common administrative tasks and wraps up with demos that help integrate an EKS cluster with a Serverless project as well as an application that uses DynamoDB from within the cluster.
About the Instructor
Vallard Benincosa is a senior engineer at a company called WeaveGrid, which focuses on climate change by efficiently coordinating between electric vehicles and utility companies. He has worked for a variety of small and large companies working on Kubernetes. He helped develop a Kubernetes certification for the Linux foundation and has been using Kubernetes since 2015. In his day job, he is a lead platform engineer ensuring production applications run reliably in Kubernetes and AWS.
What You Will Learn
Learn what problems Kubernetes solves and how it simplifies the management of microservices.
Learn how to install EKS and do administrative tasks with EKS such as upgrading, scaling the cluster, adding users, and viewing the dashboard.
Learn how to securely run applications on EKS and integrate with other AWS services such as: S3, Route53, Load Balancers, and Elastic Block Storage
Learn how to integrate container applications into the AWS ecosystem with Serverless functions performing actions on the Kubernetes cluster or how an application would interface with DynamoDB.

Table of Contents
Lesson 1: Introduction to EKS
Lesson 2: EKS IAM Resources
Lesson 3: Creating EKS Clusters
Lesson 4: Kubernetes on EKS
Lesson 5: Running Applications
Lesson 6: Administrative Tasks
Lesson 7: Integration with Other AWS Services
Lesson 1, "Introduction to EKS," lays the groundwork by defining the problems we are looking to solve. Next, it evaluates different solutions to managing container workloads and explores some tradeoffs. Last, it defines a few Kubernetes constructs and shows the value EKS provides.
Lesson 2, "EKS IAM Resources," shows how to set up users for different levels of permission access as well as how to create roles for the EKS services themselves to take on.
Lesson 3, "Creating EKS Clusters," shows two different ways of creating EKS clusters; the first by using the eksctl command line tool, and the second by going through the console. Knowing how to do this part manually will help you understand how to do it with code if you choose to do it with Terraform in your own infrastructure.
Lesson 4, "Kubernetes on EKS," delves more into the details of what EKS really is. It explores Namespaces, Pods, daemonsets, replicasets, and testing Kube-DNS.
Lesson 5, "Running Applications," shows how to expose an application to the world with load balancers and ingress controllers. It also shows how to securely associate real domain names with TLS and wrap up with adding persistent storage.
Lesson 6, "Administrative Tasks," walks through the various upkeep needed to optimize the cluster, including autoscaling, authentication, and upgrades.
Lesson 7, "Integration with Other AWS Services," introduces some of the architectures that are running in the real world where we integrate with serverless frameworks. This lesson also shows how applications interact with other AWS services and how to give permission for this to happen. Last, the lesson wraps with one final application that lists users out of a DynamoDB table.
