Kubernetes as a Container Application Platform (hands-on)

Where:  

31/3-004 at CERN

This is a hands-on workshop for both application developers and system administrators interested in building and managing Operators for Kubernetes environments. It is designed for those who have a basic knowledge of Kubernetes and want to learn how to apply domain or application-specific knowledge to automate common operational tasks.

Attendees will receive live lab environments and take an interactive journey through the process of creating real-world Operators with Go, Ansible, and Helm while mastering methodologies, design patterns, and strategies that can assist in avoiding common pitfalls. After your Operator has been created, and learn how to utilize the Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM) to define, install, and upgrade your Operator
