Chris McEniry, Sony Interactive Entertainment


Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. This introduction to Kubernetes will show you what it's like to be a user of Kubernetes, and identify concerns for starting a Kubernetes environment. Using minikube, you'll bring up a sample application and see how Kubernetes can be used to help with the ongoing operations of it. You'll examine what makes a good match for Kubernetes, and what concerns need to be addressed for other applications. You'll run through a set of concerns and constraints for what it would take to provide a Kubernetes environment.
