Introduction to Kubernetes on Edge with K3s (LFS156x) is a free 15-hour course on, intended for those interested in learning more about Kubernetes and deploying applications or embedded sensors in edge locations.

Programming experience is also not strictly required. Students will need to be able to run Docker on their computers.

The course covers how to deploy applications to the edge with open source tools such as K3s and k3sup; those tools can be applied to low-power hardware such as the Raspberry Pi.

The course was developed by Alex Ellis, a CNCF Ambassador and the Founder of OpenFaaS and inlets.
