Lesson descriptions 
Lesson 1, "Understanding the Kubernetes Revolution," speaks to the evolution of Kubernetes and how it has become so important. It discusses server-based IT and how that has been made obsolete by the container revolution, and why Kubernetes makes a lot of sense when you are converting to a complete container landscape.

Lesson 2, "Before We Get Started: Let's Talk Containers!," provides a minimal understanding of working with containers. You'll learn how to work with containers, registries, and images and by the time this lesson is over, you'll have your first container up and running.

Lesson 3, "Setting up a Kubernetes Environment," explores Kubernetes usage options, including different ways to get started with Kubernetes, after which you can pick the method that works best for you. 

Lesson 4, "Running Your First Application," gets started with the Kubernetes Dashboard, the kubectl command, and how to use them to build your first Kubernetes application!

Lesson 5, "Behind the Scenes: Understanding the API," further explores what is behind the application and discusses the API, including how to explore what it is offering. 

Lesson 6, "Using YAML to Create Kubernetes Objects," gets into YAML files for replication and explains pods as well as deployments from a YAML file.

Lesson 7, "Understanding Essential Kubernetes Object Components," covers pod scalability and security, as well as how labels, selectors, and annotations are used within the pods. 

Lesson 8, "Making Applications Accessible," shows how to expose pods using services and Ingress, after which external users should be able to access them. 

Lesson 9, "Managing Kubernetes Storage," starts by showing how to change storage in Kubernetes pods from being ephemeral. This lesson also discusses the different ways to connect an application to internal as well as external storage. 

Lesson 10, "Checking it Out in Google Cloud," quickly goes over how to manage Kubernetes in Google Cloud.
