TUTORIAL: Introduction to Kubernetes (Separate Registration Required)

Time 10/15/18 08:00AM-05:00PM

Room Oceana Grand Ballroom 2

Session Abstract

Containers have shifted the way applications are packaged and delivered. Their use with cloud oriented services, data science and machine-learning is skyrocketing with the beneficial side effect of enabling reproducible research. This rise in use has necessitated the need to explore and adopt better container-centric orchestration tools. Of these tools, Kubernetes - an open-source container platform born within Google -- has become the de-facto standard.

Kubernetes API-driven, highly extensible design has lead to its adoption by numerous vendors and projects. Powering the likes of Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Redhat, it has truly delivered a single, platform agnostic API for managing infrastructure.

The aim of this tutorial is to introduce those application architects, developers, and system administrators who may already be familiar with container concepts to the architecture of Kubernetes. Through a series of lectures and hands-on exercises, attendees will explore the many facets of working in a Kubernetes environment. These exercises will be augmented with discussions and demonstrations of various practical application deployments, with the goal of attendees being able to come away from the tutorial with the knowledge to begin to consume Kubernetes as a platform for their own programs and services.
