Kubernetes in Action is a comprehensive guide to effectively developing and running applications in a Kubernetes environment. Before diving into Kubernetes, the book gives an overview of container technologies like Docker, including how to build containers, so that even readers who haven't used these technologies before can get up and running.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
About the Technology
Kubernetes is Greek for "helmsman," your guide through unknown waters. The Kubernetes container orchestration system safely manages the structure and flow of a distributed application, organizing containers and services for maximum efficiency. Kubernetes serves as an operating system for your clusters, eliminating the need to factor the underlying network and server infrastructure into your designs.
About the Book
Kubernetes in Action teaches you to use Kubernetes to deploy container-based distributed applications. You'll start with an overview of Docker and Kubernetes before building your first Kubernetes cluster. You'll gradually expand your initial application, adding features and deepening your knowledge of Kubernetes architecture and operation. As you navigate this comprehensive guide, you'll explore high-value topics like monitoring, tuning, and scaling.
- Kubernetes' internals
- Deploying containers across a cluster
- Securing clusters
- Updating applications with zero downtime
About the Reader
Written for intermediate software developers with little or no familiarity with Docker or container orchestration systems.

Marko Luksa is a software engineer at Red Hat with the Cloud Enablement Team, whose responsibility is to make Red Hat's Enterprise Middleware products run on OpenShift, the PaaS platform built on top of Kubernetes. He also has 15 years of teaching others, helping him understand the learner's perspective and how to present difficult topics in a clear and understandable way.
The author offers best practices showing how to split up application by front-end and back-end components so that it will remain highly scalable. Intermixed are the author's opinions and he makes it clear when he prefers a certain approach or tool.
A reasonable progression exists throughout the book going from introductory topics to more advanced architectures. This book is a great choice for learning Kubernetes, or improving your existing skills.
Short review: Once you are ready to really start using kubernetes beyond your home lab or POC project, get this book.
This book changed all of that for me.
The concepts are cohesively laid out, with lots of architecture diagrams and configuration examples for each one. Each chapter acts as a foundation for the next one, and the transition between concepts is extremely well done.
Best of all, the book is available to read free online from the publisher's website. I purchased a physical copy, which will also give you the pdf and kindle versions at no additional cost.

It's a little old now. The book mostly talks about Kubernetes 1.7-1.9, but as of this writing we're on Kubernetes 1.16. I was looking at the author's twitter to see if he's working on a 2nd edition when I saw a comment he made about appreciating reviews. Well, I appreciate the intense labor you so obviously put into this book.
I kept a strict pace of a chapter a day and it took me about 2 hours per chapter. Now, I was reading very carefully and trying to make sure I took in every word, so it might not take you as long. A friend of mine read it at the same time as me and he could sit down and read 4 chapters in a night, whereas... well... I couldn't really manage more than 2 in the same day without feeling like I didn't take it all in.
The content is EXPERTLY organized. I'm a hawk for typos and I only found like 3 or 4 in all 559 pages. There were a few topics (mainly, GitOps workflows, Skaffold, Istio, etc.) that this book would really really benefit from touching on. Especially GitOps.
