After the meetup is before the meetup. Our plan was to start with meetups every other month, but what are plans? We are happy to welcome Peter Rossbach of bee42 solutions here in Karlsruhe to talk about the Helm package manager and leveraging Helm together with Gitlab CI to automate complex Kubernetes deployments.

Thanks to andrena objects ( for hosting and sponsoring this meetup!

Helm: Build fashionable container systems with Kubernetes by Peter Rossbach (@PRossbach)

Helm is a package manager that helps to install and manage Kubernetes manifests. With the Helm tool you can configure different releases of your application. The Helm ecosystem offers you many features to setup and manage complex cloud native container systems. Serverless or microservice architectures need a lot of glue infrastructure components. Helm is more than homebrew for Kubernetes.

In this talk I will show you some automation practices, such as infrastructure as code, continuous integration, continuous deployment, release automation with Gitlab. We build container systems in conjunction with Kubernetes and Helm. As developer you will learn, how you easily can control your stage environments, reuse setups and how to release your complete application stack.
