Intro to Kubeflow: Fundamentals Training and Certification Recap – July 14, 2022

We recently hosted the “Intro to Kubeflow: Fundamentals Training and Certification” prep course. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the class plus give a summary of the Q&A. Ok, let’s dig in!

Congratulations to Michael Greenberg!

The first student to earn the “Fundamentals” certificate at the conclusion of the course was Michael Greenberg who works at Red Hat. A coupon code for the Arrikto Community Store is yours, well done!

First, thanks for voting for your favorite charity!

Arrikto is looking for even more ways to contribute. With this in mind, we thought that in lieu of swag we could give course attendees the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity and help guide our monthly donation to charitable causes. The charity that won this workshop’s voting was the Global Fund for Women. The Global Fund for Women’s mission is to be a global champion for the human rights of women and girls. They use their powerful networks to find, fund, and amplify the courageous work of women who are building social movements and challenging the status quo. We are pleased to be making a donation of $100 to them on behalf of the Kubeflow community. Again, thanks to all of you who attended and voted!

What topics were covered in the course?

This initial course aimed to get data scientists and DevOps engineers with little or no experience familiar with the fundamentals of how Kubeflow works.

  • Kubeflow architecture
  • Overview of machine learning workflows
  • Kubeflow components
  • Tools and add-ons (Kale, Rok, Istio, etc)
  • Distributions
  • Kubeflow as a Service
  • Community overview

What did I miss?

Here’s a short teaser from the 90 minute training. In this video we demonstrate three things in regards to Katib (which is a Kubeflow component that provides AutoML, hyperparameter tuning and early stopping):

  • How to view an experiment
  • How to set up experiments
  • How to identify the best run


You can find a playlist of all the demos from the workshop here.
