Detailed Review Of Preparation

Guys , I am very excited to share my Kubernetes Journey with you all.

About 6 months before, I started learning Kubernets when I was told that soon the deployment in my project will be on Kubernetes. Like any other IT enthusiast I liked the idea of learning and along with it getting certified too. Without wasting time I purchased the course and registered for the exam. It costed me 500$ in total(300 $ for the exam fees and 200 $ for the course from linux academy). It was huge cost but I was so excited that I purchased this without thinking too much. Soon then I started learning it, I found it very interesting both from concept point of view and the exercises in the course. This continued for almost two months. 




But then came the point , was I ready to give the exam? I used to wonder how will I write all these complex yamls in the exam? I certainly cant memorize them. Unlike any Cloud certificate where you will have multi options ,CKA exam is something where you will have to give practical exam for three hours and you will be judged from top to bottom both conceptually and practically. This made me so much discouraged that I thought I wasted my money for booking the exam. 

As there is a famous saying, where there is a will there is a way! One fine day I was told by my fried that there is one good course by Mumshad which has nice stuff for CKA exam. I was not moved and I replied to my fried that I already have invested so much of money on the course , now I do not want to invest more. My friend insisted and just because he was so keen I took his credentials of Kode Kloud and started learning.

Man.... as soon as I open the course , started the practicals I was moved. That night I remember I spent about 6 hours continuously after office and  did many exercises. The yamls which were too difficult to write now seemed like so easy. Thanks to the nice course by Mumshad. I started my journey all over again and with in two to two and half months I was exam ready! Btw I purchased the course too from Kode Kloud later on when the sale was on  ;)


The journey which started 6 months before and was halted in between was on the track now!  Finally the day arrived when I went to gave the exam in the early hours of 29'th December 2019 and was awarded by CNCF(Cloud Native Computing Foundation) CKA aka Certified Kubernetes Administrator with a percentage of 85.  It was like earning a badge.

The reason I wrote this blog is just to let you guys know that the Kubernetes is so wonderful and it will not be wise to not learn it. If you are keen to learn and getting certified, I would recommend Mumshad Course on Kode Kloud. 

Wishing you all a great Kubernetes Journey!
