Worthless!

To call the reader’s voice “wooden” is an insult to wood! Couldn’t listen to more than 5 minutes.

The book itself is written for people already familiar with Kubernetes, because it jumps in to the super tech stuff without any warm up or background. The guy actually reads a list of command line options!!

I only got this because of the reviews, but it’s obvious they’re fake! Worst technical audio book ever!

The content in this book is of great quality

The introductory content in this book is of great quality in general. Everything is well-explained and understandable. As I previously indicated, this is useful for both novices and those who need to study or clarify a topic. However, it stops there because it doesn't go into detail on more advanced topics like RBAC, storage, Helm, stateful sets, and so on... It mentions them briefly but does not go into detail or provide code examples. However, I believe the book is mostly intended for novice users, and another nice aspect is that the author provides free updates, which is very useful given the rapid rate of change in K8s.

Helped me better grasp the subject

Kubernetes was explained clearly and without jargon, and I appreciated how nearly every subject contained practical demonstrations to aid my understanding of the technology. Although no prior experience of Kubernetes is required to understand the material, I feel a basic familiarity with programming and containers is required. The book covers all of Kubernetes' most important components and, without a doubt, thoroughly communicates them.

Well worth the money!

Since Kubernetes isn't part of my present position, I'm merely a passive learner. After listening to Kubernetes: A Step-by-Step Guide to Learn and Master Kubernetes, it provides a more practical understanding of the 'how,' as the title suggests, in terms of practice patterns. It is a fantastic book for someone like me who needs a break from reading random blog posts. It is not, however, a collection of instances. The book emphasizes some of the contracts that cloud apps should fulfill, and thus many of the mistakes I've made or would have made, and it's well worth the money!

Love the content

This book was easy to follow and comprehend. Listen to it all the way through to get a complete idea of what Kubernetes can do for you and how it works. It's not a reference book; rather, it's a reading guide that takes you through the layers so you know precisely what you're getting into when you go down the Kubernetes path.

Helped me get my thoughts straight

Recently, I've been reading a couple of Kubernetes books. This is the one that helped me get my thoughts straight. The remaining volumes make sense now that the issues have been clarified. Why would I want to read the others if I didn't have to? Although the book is short and to the point, it lacks a lot of information that I've found elsewhere. Nonetheless, pay attention to it; your grey matter will appreciate it.

Thorough and well-written

A thorough and well-written audiobook. The book goes extensively into fundamental ideas for beginners, making Kubernetes much easier to grasp. In my opinion, it's a nice and thorough foundation introduction and reference item for a first read. Excellent specimens, however, the raspberry cluster one is a touch dated. But that's it; everything will be obsolete in a matter of weeks.

Easy to understand

Numerous easy-to-understand diagrams to back explanations on what the Kubernetes resources are used for. Covers a lot of Kubernetes capabilities without going too deep into how they actually work behind the scene but it is not the purpose of the book. Love the chapter around Kubernetes services. The design pattern section of the book unlike what the title might suggest is actually not that big but it is clear and straight to the point.

Interesting guidebook

This is an interesting guidebook that I would strongly suggest; each example is concise and to the point. Although I am not new to K8s, I have read some of the official documentation on Kubernetes. io left conceptual gaps in my knowledge, which this book really helped to fill.

Excellent Kubernetes resource for anyone

An excellent resource for anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of Kubernetes rapidly. It isn't a deep-dive book, but it does cover the majority of the important themes. Because the Kubernetes world is rapidly developing, I like that the author maintains the content up to date. This is critical while learning any rapidly changing technology.

Both informative and well-written

An audiobook that is both informative and well-written. The book delves deeply into essential concepts for beginners, making Kubernetes much more understandable. It's a good, full foundation introduction and reference item for a first read, in my opinion. Excellent specimens, albeit the raspberry cluster one appears to be a little out of date. But that's it; in a few weeks, everything will be obsolete.

Concise and to the point

There are numerous simple illustrations to accompany descriptions of what Kubernetes resources are used for. Covers a lot of Kubernetes features without getting into too much detail on how they work behind the scenes, but that isn't the point of the book. The chapter on Kubernetes services is fantastic. The design pattern section of the book, contrary to the title, is not particularly large, but it is concise and to the point.

Helped me clear my mind

I've been studying a couple of Kubernetes books lately. This is the one that helped me clear my mind. Now that the issues have been explained, the other volumes make sense. If I didn't have to, why would I want to read the others? The book is short and to the point, however, it lacks a lot of information that I've discovered elsewhere. Still, pay attention to it; your grey matter will thank you.

Informative course

This is the one book you need if you're new to Kubernetes or if you're a manager who wants your team to be prepared for the next IT cloud containerized strategy. It will provide your staff with a thorough understanding of Kubernetes. I appreciate the author's work and effort in writing and updating the book.

Kubernetes was introduced properly and without jargon; I enjoyed that nearly every subject also included practical demos to help me learn this program successfully.

Worth the purchase

I'm just a passive Kubernetes learner since it is outside my current role. After reading Kubernetes in Action to grasp the 'what' this book provided a more practical understanding of the 'how' in terms of practice patterns like the title says. This is a great book for someone like myself, an escape from random blog posts, and by no means a compilation of examples. The book emphasizes some of the contracts that cloud apps should fulfill, and thereby a lot of the mistakes I've made or would have made, which is worth every penny!

Understandable and clear

This book was understandable and clear. Listen to it from beginning to end to obtain a thorough understanding of what Kubernetes can accomplish for you and how it operates. It's not a reference book; rather, it's a readable book that leads you through the layers so you know exactly what you're getting yourself into when you commit to the Kubernetes road.

Everything is well explained

The general quality of the introductory material in this book is excellent. Everything is well-explained and simple to comprehend. And, as I previously stated, this is beneficial for novices as well as anyone who needs to review or clarify a topic. It ends there, however, because it doesn't really cover more sophisticated subjects like RBAC, storage, Helm, stateful sets, and so on... It briefly describes them but doesn't go into detail or provide code examples. However, I believe the book is mostly aimed at new users, and another great feature is that the author offers free updates, which is very useful considering the rapid rate of change in K8s.

Incredible guide

This is an incredible guide for anyone wishing to quickly learn the fundamentals of Kubernetes. It isn't a deep-dive book, but it does cover the majority of the main principles. Because the Kubernetes world is rapidly developing, I like that the author maintains the content current. This is critical while learning any fast-paced technology.
