Kubernetes or K8s is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Perfect for deploying all those Docker containers you have been building.

Get to know Kubernetes

In this presentation, we will be covering the basics of Kubernetes and set out to build a web-based cluster environment. Starting by walking through installing and configuration of your local development environment. Next, we will show you how to create a cluster using Minikube to deploy, explore, expose, update and scale your containers. Finally, we will need to set up an independent Docker instance. So that Minikube can use the instance to create containers and push them to a container registry.

Even though we will be using Docker in today’s demo, we will not be spending much time on the Docker setup and installation. Therefore, I recommend you check out our presentation “Introduction to Docker” for more details on setting up and using Docker.

Some additional topics we will be covering:
  • What is Kubernetes?
  • Overview of its Architecture
  • What are the ways to learn Kubernetes?
  • Walk thru on how to setup and use Kubernetes
