Reviews From Students

Clear aspects

Tibor Petróczy

The course is very clear and well-built over the topics.
Students are able to follow step-by-step the technical details and tasks with samples.

Awesome content!

Nasir Bilal

Very concise, technical overview of Istio from basics to more advanced features. Very professional delivery and excellent accompanying texts and code snippets. It would have been icing on the cake if the k8s cluster setup for the final module (Real World Examples) would have been performed for the first module so that everybody going through the course would have a similar learning experience, and might help less experienced learners save time and get straight to learning Istio.

Really simple and effective explanations

Firoz Mohamed

Really simple and effective way of understanding istio and the fundamental operations for people with limited background as well. Highly recommended.

Really really good!

Bojanche Stojchevski

Excellent overview of Istio capabilities! Props to the presenter and its knowledge and ability to share it effectively. The program and examples were on point as well. The quizzes are well constructed as well, maybe a bigger pool of questions is needed, and rotate them between rounds if you don’t pass it the first time!

Organized very well

Istio is complex, but Peter makes it pleasant to understand the theory, and the provided labs are very convenient to “grasp” concepts faster.

Excellent Course

Daniel Henrique Teixeira Leite

This course is of a high level and very well designed. This course, even though free, was much better than many paid courses I’ve taken from schools like linuxacademy, cloud guru and udemy. My sincere thanks to Tetrate for the knowledge I gained.

Loved the Traffic Management and Security sections in the course. Man!!! I was sooo confused on the terminologies and the workings of Istio/Envoy before taking this course. I am definitely taking your Advanced Certification.
