Abstract: 

In this session, we will show you how you can use standard DevOps practices such as infrastructure as code, continuous integration & continuous deployment, automated release and more in conjunction with Kubernetes (AKS) and Helm. For those who don’t know, Helm is a tool that streamlines installing and managing Kubernetes applications; it’s like homebrew for Kubernetes, but it’s also so much more.
