Talk: Kubernetes - going beyond the basics

So you've got a good grasp of the Kubernetes basics, you can create a cluster and deploy some applications to it, what about taking things up a notch?

In this talk and with demos we'll cover some more advanced topics within Kubernetes such as:

  • Influencing the scheduling of pods
  • Controlling applications being scheduled using admission controllers
  • Auto scaling of applications and clusters
  • Options for extending/customising Kubernetes using Custom Resources
  • Adding a service mesh to improve traffic shaping

After this talk attendees should have a much clearer understanding of the additional capability in Kubernetes and associated platforms that they can to use to improve their application platform.

Attendees should have a good understanding of the basic Kubernetes concepts and constructs.
