Azure Workshop: Kubernetes in a Day

Join the Microsoft Cloud Advocates at Reactor London for this workshop, where you’ll learn to use Kubernetes on Azure in a day. We’ll introduce Kubernetes, then look at how it can be deployed on Azure, before rolling on to more advanced topics.

The day is split into three parts:
We’ll start with Kubernetes 101, where you will learn about the components of Kubernetes, and how you can deploy to Azure. You’ll also discover pods, services and deployments, roles, stateful sets, networking and load balancing.

In part 2, we’ll introduce Helm. Expect to learn about charts, deploying Helm, the Help CLI, deploying and writing a chart. We’ll then take a look at Helm and CNAB.

The final part of the day looks at Kubernetes advanced topics. You’ll learn about Virtual kubelets, Pod security context and istio (including advanced application routing and setting mTLS).

This workshop is aimed at Developers and Cloud Operations. To be successful at getting the most out of these workshops you will need the following prior knowledge:

– A basic understanding of Linux
– Be able to read bash scripts
– Have a basic knowledge of what a container is

To be able to run the labs in the workshops you will need to have or create an Azure account that has access to create service principals. If you don’t have an Azure account and want to run the workshops, you can sign up for an Azure trial that will give you free credit to complete the workshop

You must bring your own laptop for this workshop. You’ll also need to download Docker before you can start this workshop. Please do this beforehand if possible.
