Kubernetes Fundamentals, Upward Hartford, Thursday, 08. August 2019

So you have some code. Perhaps it's packaged neatly with a REST API. You are on your way to Microservices. Next, you wrap it in a container and now it's an image that others can run. Simple. Now what? No service is an island. Your service needs to log information, needs to scale and load balance between its clones. Your service needs a host and access to metadata way outside its context. What about where the service will run? Who starts it? What monitors its health? What about antifragility? Updates? Networking? Oh my.
Services live in clusters and clusters live in data centers. Many concepts overlap with the features of cloud management. But don't get too flustered since, fundamentally, services are managed by clusters. Kubernetes helps you get your collection of containers and services to a distributed cluster. Some say Kuberetnes is hard, but you will soon see it's really an effective tool that reins in the challenges of distributed systems.
We will run some practical examples with Kubernetes. Once you understand the mechanics of the tools, we will explore how it works, sort through the terminology, its architecture then share ideas about practical uses for this technology.
Afterward, you will understand how to run your personal cluster with your Linux, OS X or Windows laptop to further enjoy unraveling the mysteries of running applications in a cluster.
