Diving into Kubernetes

Event Logo

Monday, July 29, 2024 - 2:00 PM UTC, for 4 hours.

Workshop (pre-conference)

Room: African 40


The tutorial will be structured in a way where the speakers will start with an introduction to containers and why they exist in the first place, moving on to container orchestration and where Kubernetes fits in. They will then fast-forward it to the Kubernetes architecture and various building blocks that build up a Kubernetes cluster. The next portion will be Kubernetes objects, where the speakers will set up a cluster, create Pods and Deployments, and then expose the application to the outside world. This talk aims to explain Kubernetes and then deploy a sample application so that people can understand the complete flow and the rest of the conference becomes more meaningful for first-time attendees. All this will be live and hands-on, with attendees doing it simultaneously. This workshop will leave the attendees with a rich Kubernetes experience that they can go back to and apply within their current jobs and projects.
