“I have to learn Kubernetes - where do I start?”
With all of the awesome community introductions to Kubernetes, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start when faced with the reality of learning it. In this talk, we’ll take you on our journey of how and what we learned about using Kubernetes in production...in nine months. We’ll do our best to answer the questions:
- What did we need to understand about the internals of Kubernetes?
- What are the constructs we used the most?
- What were some useful Kubernetes patterns?
- What about Kubernetes security?
- How did we handle cluster management?
- What were some of the pitfalls we found?
