Training schedule

Step out of your office and daily routine – this allows full concentration on the training content, so we warmly invite you to join us.

We start at 9:30 AM with tea or espresso and a light snack.

At 12:00 PM, we have lunch together in our canteen, and then we continue with the training.

Training days are intense, so we don’t conduct 8 hours of lecture-style teaching. We finish at 4:00 PM.

You will always have two trainers available: This ensures no one falls behind, every exercise can be completed, and questions in between do not cause delays.

After the Training

We are happy to continue to be available as your point of contact even after the training.

We received an intensive three-day Kubernetes training from the DevOps team at Makandra. Makandra tailored the training to our specific challenges and the knowledge level of our team. I highly recommend their training sessions!
