Welcome to another edition of ChicagoRuby Downtown! Our August meeting will feature Josh Dolitsky, who will be presenting "Kubernetes for Ruby Developers".
Over the past couple years, you've probably heard the term "Kubernetes" from your friends over in the DevOps department. But what exactly is it? As a Ruby developer, what does it mean to me?
We will go over a practical example of how Docker and Kubernetes can be used to deploy a simple Ruby-based web app. Learn the basics behind the Kubernetes platform and why people are making such a big deal about it.
After we get the gist of how Kubernetes works, we'll briefly dive into using a Ruby-based client library for Kubernetes and how we can start building our own developer tools to manipulate Kubernetes resources. By the end of the talk, we will have a functional mini Kubernetes deployment tool written in Ruby.
Note: This talk will be demo-heavy, and all source code used during demos will be made available afterwards on GitHub.
