We have been looking for the best Kubernetes tutorials out there and thought of sharing some of what we found interesting to get started with Kubernetes. 

The Official Tutorials 

It is more of a collection of the existing content on It focuses more on introducing the general concepts and constructs of Kubernetes. But it doesn’t provide necessary lessons that build upon each other. Covered Topics: 

Working in production with Kubernetes? Having some trouble getting started? See how Magalix can help.

DigitalOcean Tutorials

It is a collection of articles that are nicely written and well organized. They are sometimes focused on Running Kubernetes on top of DigitalOcean however. But you are still going to learn a lot of Kubernetes basics that are applicable to any other infrastructure. Some of the notable topics are:

Google Kubernetes Engine Tutorials

Google tutorials are mostly focused on specific use cases more than teaching you the basic Kubernetes concepts. Examples of such tutorials are: create a guestbook with Redis and PHP on GKE, or Using Persistent Disks with WordPress and MySQL. Google depends mainly on as the main source of knowledge about Kubernetes since Google engineers are most contributors to these tutorials. Main covered topics:

GCP marketplace

Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Tutorials 

Microsoft Azure tutorials on AKS are heavily focused on Microsoft’s managed Kubernetes version. It is also limited compared to what’s out there. It is pretty much like a glorified hello world tutorial community taking you from deploying a simple application all the way to upgrading a cluster. If you are into getting things done using AKS more than learning about Kubernetes, I’d recommend you to go straight into these tutorials. Covered topics are:

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service Tutorials

IBM cloud tutorials are fanatic about IBM Kubernetes Service. Although you will learn a lot about Kubernetes, it will be only the IBM way of running Kubernetes :) What I liked about these tutorials are the advanced use cases that you may need to look at, such as performance tuning or protecting sensitive information in your cluster

Another aspect that I think is unique to IBM is the focus on deploying applications of a vertical market on Kubernetes, such as applications for financial services, healthcare, and retail

Notable topics are:

AWS EKS Guides and Tutorials

AWS is a more fanatic about their managed Kubernetes :) They have decent tutorials but heavily focused on EKS. I guess you wouldn’t a many of them because most of the Kubernetes deployments on AWS are self-managed by AWS customers. Notable tutorials are:

Other Advanced Kubernetes Tutorials


We collected those tutorials and links for you to get started with Kubernetes or if want to build a more resilient and efficient infrastructure using Kubernetes. The best out of all these tutorials are DigitalOcean tutorials. They are super organized, clean, and engaging. 

Regardless of where you are in your Kubernetes journey, you will always want to make sure you are running your apps and infrastructure wisely.
