By popular request, we are taking our community in a deep dive into Kubernetes. This workshop will have something in store for everyone, dev to ops, newbie to pro, Linux to Mac to Windows:

1. Presentation of Kubernetes architecture (20mins)
2. Install your first cluster on GKE (Google Container Engine)
3. Your first pod with one container
4. Your second pod with two containers
5. Failures and Recovery
6. Scale your application with replication controllers
7. Manage services and firewalling
8. Rolling updates: replace appv1 with appv2

IMPORTANT! Bring your laptop (fully charged!) and charger. And please turn off all sharing, file syncing and other network hogs, so we play nice to the network!

RSVP responsibly!This is a limited seat event. In the past months we have seen a growing number of no-shows at events (= canceling less than 24h from the event or just not showing up at all), leaving empty seats, drinks, food and -above all- people on the waiting list not able to join. So don't be a NO-SHOW'ER, and update your RSVP more than 24h in advance.
