CKAD Certification Journey: Team Learning Experience

We’re excited to announce our collective journey towards achieving the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) certification. This initiative stems from our belief that continuous learning and “upscaling” are essential in today’s rapidly evolving tech landscape.

Why start this journey?

In our role as consultants, we frequently encounter challenges that extend beyond traditional development tasks. With Kubernetes emerging as a fundamental platform for deploying and managing applications, acquiring expertise in this area has become imperative. By undertaking the CKAD certification together, we not only enhance our individual capabilities but also align ourselves with the latest industry standards.

How are we approaching this concretely?

We’ve chosen to follow the CKAD learning path offered by, a reputable platform known for its comprehensive course content and hands-on exercises. Our team member Kristof, who holds CKAD and CKA certificates obtained in 2020, will be facilitating our journey. The curriculum is thoughtfully structured into 12 chapters, covering essential topics ranging from core concepts to exam preparation.

Here’s a brief overview of the curriculum:

  1. Introduction
  2. Core concepts
  3. Configuration
  4. Multi-container pods
  5. Observability
  6. Pod Design
  7. Services & Networking
  8. State persistence
  9. Security
  10. Helm fundamentals
  11. Exam questions prep 1
  12. Exam questions prep 2


We’ll gather as a team every two weeks to review the material, discuss key concepts, and address any questions or challenges that arise. This collaborative learning approach not only fosters a sense of camaraderie but also enables us to leverage each other’s strengths and insights.
