About the event
If you are an application developer, we’re quite sure you know Kubernetes. The platform is gaining popularity, and that is why the Study center for Automatic Information processing (SAI) is organizing a Kubernetes workshop on 21/4/2021, together with our experts Peter Jans and Stijn Van den Enden.
Kubernetes, or k8s, is a technique for organizing containers: Container-Orchestration. A container is a data structure that implements a conceptual bin or container and contains one or more other objects. A container either contains mainly objects (so that it becomes a collection), but can also be intended to add functionalities to the objects that the container contains.
Kubernetes is an opensource-software for deploying and managing such containers at scale. Developers and DevOps engineers can develop much faster because tasks are automated and a lot of configuration work is taken off your hands.
During this workshop you will get an introduction to Kubernetes and gain the necessary insights in how to use its capabilities and avoid the pitfalls.
- The Foundations of Cloud Native Cumputing & Ecosystem
- Overview of Kubernetes & Containers
- Kubernetes as an enabler for a robust, scalable and manageable infrastructure
- Private Public and Hybrid Deployment & Management
- DevOps & Kubernetes, monitoring, governance, security and continuous delivery
- Service meshes as a platform for Microservices
- AI, Serverless workloads on Kubernetes
