Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD)

Do you build, deploy and configure cloud native applications? If so this certification is for you. A certified Kubernetes App Developer candidate knows how to build micro-service applications in Java, Go, Python, Node.js or Java and requires the skills to define application resources and leverage core Kubernetes primitives to build scalable applications ready for deployment to a Kubernetes cluster.

performance based exam

As with all Linux Foundations certifications the exam is performance based. The exam assumes familiarity with container run-times and micro-service architecture but does not test for these directly.
