IMPORTANT: NEW LOCATION AT GE DIGITAL (DOWNTOWN)
January Meeting: BYOK - Build your own Kubernetes Cluster with Raspberry Pis, k3s, k3sup, and OpenFaaS!
Rancher’s k3s was designed to be a lightweight distro of Kubernetes to support IoT and edge type devices. However, it’s gained a lot of traction everywhere! We’ll talk about it, but see how easy it is to install and setup a Raspberry Pi cluster using k3sup, a utility created by Alex Ellis (creator of OpenFaaS). We’ll talk about Kubernetes primitives, deploy a few demo apps, and then setup and run a few functions with OpenFaaS. Lots of fun stuff to see and live demos. Should be lots of fun!
We meet on the first Thursday of each month at the GE Digital (https://www.ge.com/digital/) building in downtown Roanoke. The address is 207 Bullitt Avenue SE, Roanoke, VA 24013. Parking at Elmwood Lot, right before the GE Digital Building, on the right. Street parking is also okay.
