• Understand the architecture of Kubernetes (Control plane and its components, worker nodes, and kubelet)
• Learn how to troubleshoot issues with deployments on Kubernetes
• Apply resource requests, limits, and probes to deployments
• Manage dynamic application configuration using ConfigMaps and Secrets
• Deploy other workloads, including DaemonSets, Jobs, and CronJobs
