Kubernetes is fast becoming one of the leading platforms for running Cloud Native applications. There are many resources out there to get you started using Kubernetes, but what happens when you actually want to take things into production?

In this hands-on workshop we will cover the fundamental concepts and features of Kubernetes, and then move beyond this to setup a production ready Kubernetes cluster. We will cover the best practices as well as some common anti-patterns for deploying and running your applications on Kubernetes. Topics Covered:

  • Basic Kubernetes concepts
  • Readiness / Liveness Probes
  • Advanced deployments (Canary, A/B, Blue/Green)
  • Auto Scaling
  • High Availability
  • Monitoring
  • RBAC
  • Multi-master cluster

Who should attend: This workshop is for developers who are looking to learn (more) about Kubernetes.
