An Introduction to Kubernetes - Part I

In this workshop, we're going to introduce you to the orchestrator formally known as Kubernetes. This isn't about why or if you should be using it, more of I need to work with a Kubernetes cluster and how do I connect to it and get it to work for me.


In this workshop, you will:

  • have your very own cluster already setup and show you how to connect to it from your own machine
  • understand how we run our workloads and how to update them
  • how do we load balancer our workloads and make them available to others on the internet
  • some common mistakes that you can avoid

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to hold your head high and say that you can work with a Kubernetes cluster and be ready for your next Cloud Native adventure!
