Azure Containers and AKS 2 Day Workshop

Emerging Technology Partners

2 Day Workshop covering the basics of containers, Kubernetes and AKS. Hands on sessions where you will containerise an application to run on AKS.

This workshop is designed to help you explore how the Microsoft Azure platform can help you meet critical business objectives by using containers, Kubernetes and containerisation concepts.

This workshop will include several hands-on labs to demonstrate the concept of containers, understand ho to apply containerisation principals with the tools on the Azure platform and provide insight into just how easy it it is to build and deploy powerful new capabilities on Azure.

Additionally, the workshop aims to accelerate your first project with dedicated "build: time with facilitators to get you started and on the journey of Containerisation.
