Who is this presentation for?

  • Developers, those in operations, IT administrators, system administrators, and open source developers

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with container orchestration and Kubernetes (useful but not required)

What you'll learn

  • Gain a deeper understanding of container orchestration, the benefits of using Helm charts with Kubernetes clusters, and using orchestration tools such as Kubernetes for microservices and apps


Helm is a tool that streamlines installing and managing Kubernetes applications; it’s like Homebrew for Kubernetes, but it’s also so much more. Jessica Deen shows you how to use standard DevOps practices such as IaC, CI/CD, and automated release in conjunction with Kubernetes (AKS) and Helm. You’ll learn how key DevOps practices tie right into container orchestration with Kubernetes and Helm and explore a live demo showcasing how to get started with Kubernetes by deploying a Go app through a full CI/CD pipeline using a preconfigured Helm chart.
