It's here! It's here!! It's finally here!! I couldn't be more excited about the launch of my new book "Acing the Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam"!
I've been teaching the world Kubernetes since 2018, ever since I was thrown into it at this fintech startup I was working at slightly prior to 2018. When I started learning Kubernetes, there weren't a bazillion courses and books on Kubernetes, so it was a steep learning curve. Luckily, there was an amazing community to help me along the way, which still exists today.
My passion for teaching Kubernetes came from trying to fill that gap in knowledge that I once had. Whenever I start a new course or book, I always think back and ask myself "what would I have wanted to hear" or "how would I have liked the instructor to present this." It's served me well, I think and has stayed true all the way to the release of this book.
I'm star-struck and humbled to be in such great company as Marko Lukša, Elton Stoneman, and William Denniss at Manning. I keep pinching myself, ready to wake up once this dream is over. However, I know that I'll be putting something out that will make them and many others proud. I put everything I had into this writing, and continue to do since this is an early access version.
This book wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for my idols Mike Pfeiffer, Tim Warner, Elton Stoneman, and Bret Fisher, for whom I constantly look at for guidance and inspiration. I wouldn't be able to dedicate the time and energy to this book without my wife, Georgianne, and my kids Ruby, and Emerson. They are the reason I keep going, and I hope to make them proud.
