Workshop: Kubernetes best practices and GitOps principles

Managing Kubernetes should be simple, easy, and clear. The Kubernetes toolbox was designed to make well-known DevOps practices and ultimately automation achievable. The four GitOps principles provide the critical guide for Kubernetes to achieve the desired properties.

This practice-oriented workshop will focus on advanced topics from Kubernetes:

  • Health checks, high availability and zero-downtime updates
  • Routing, Load Balancing, and Ingress

In addition, it is addressed to:
