Learn by doing

Cloud, Kubernetes, Python, and more. Just open your browser and dive in.

Interactive learning is the fastest way to explore a new technology. Because you’re not just reading about it—you’re also manipulating it in real time to discover how it works. In the past, companies had to set up complex environments and datasets for their teams to get their heads around cloud platforms and cloud-based infrastructure and orchestration. But with O’Reilly, it’s as simple as opening a browser.

Try your hand at applying the skills you’ve learned within real dev environments, but without step-by-step guidance. Think you can do it? You’ll get hints as you progress through the challenge in case you get stuck, so you can find effective solutions (and know which aren’t so effective) that you’re sure to remember when you encounter them in actual work situations.
