KubeCloud: Tangible Cloud Computing with Kasper Nissen and Martin Jensen

At most universities, there is not a course titled “cloud computing”. Most students leave college without an understanding of distributed systems, cloud service providers, and the fundamentals of how a data center works. Kasper Nissen and Martin Jensen are changing that with KubeCloud, a small tangible cloud computing cluster that runs on Raspberry Pis.


Kasper and Martin started KubeCloud as a masters thesis, and it is grown to a textbook-sized treatise on cloud computing. KubeCloud is both software and a curriculum to teach students microservices, containers management, and the real-world problems of distributed systems.
