Tue 28 May 2019 09:00 - 12:30 at Centre-Ville - Running Applications on Kubernetes

Course Description

Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes adds an abstraction layer to infrastructure whether that infrastructure is on-premises, in the cloud, or hybrid. Run and migrate workloads to the most appropriate deployment environment.

This workshop is an introduction to running applications on Kubernetes. The workshop includes a mix of lecture and hands-on labs. Participants will package a Java application into a Docker container, and then deploy and manage that application in Kubernetes. This workshop will utilize a number of services provided by Google Cloud Platform but the concepts are portable to any environment.

During this session, participants will:

  • Package a simple, sample application into a Docker container
  • Create a Kubernetes cluster
  • Deploy the sample application in the Kubernetes cluster
  • Scale the application, both up and down
  • Upgrade the application
  • View information and statistics about the application and k8s cluster

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Describe various features and benefits for Kubernetes
  • Deploy and manage applications on Kubernetes
