What you'll learn

  • Explore Kubernetes 1.8 through live demos


Kubernetes has become the go-to open source framework for managing containers and building application platforms that scale from 1 to 5,000 machines. Kelsey Hightower offers an overview of the Kubernetes 1.8 release and explains why this trend will continue.

Through a collection of live demos, you’ll learn how to extend Kubernetes using custom resource definitions, build autoscalers using the Kubernetes Metrics API, protect your secrets with Kubernetes’s native data encryption features, and improve the reliability of your applications using Kubernetes’s latest scheduling and workload prioritization features.

This session is sponsored by Google Cloud.
