Kubernetes Hands-on Workshop

Kubernetes is how you run Docker in production. Bring your laptop with Docker for Windows or Docker for Mac installed. We'll walk through getting a K8s cluster fired up on Docker-Desktop, Podman, or Minikube, and on Azure. You'll be hosting Docker containers in development and production in no time.

  • This course will also be held at NDC Oslo 2024

We'll dig deep into:

  • A quick tour through Docker concepts
  • The components of a Kubernetes cluster
  • Pods, services, deployments, and replicas
  • ways to scale and expose/isolate your containers
  • Public and private container registries
  • Promoting from development to production
  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
  • Best practices for building at cloud scale
  • Tips & Tricks for leveraging Docker and Kubernetes
  • When not to use Kubernetes

We'll look at the commands and ecosystem around building infrastructure as code, local and cloud clusters, and best practices with containers. Come see why devs and ops love Kubernetes.

Our Goals

  1. Get Docker Desktop running on your machine in Kubernetes mode.
  2. Teach you the skills to leverage Docker and Kubernetes in your environment today.

Why are we learning Docker too? The Kubernetes story begins with "so you've got a Docker container ...". Docker is how we build the images; Kubernetes is how we run these containers at scale.

Prerequisites
Because Docker leverages the OS's virtualization technologies, the install requirements for Docker are very specific. Ensure you exactly meet these specs to get the most from our time today:

Mac requirements:
- 2010 or newer model with Intel's MMU virtualization
- OS X 10.15 or newer

Windows requirements:
- 64-bit Windows
- Windows 10 version 2004 or better
- Access to your machine's BIOS to turn on virtualization
- Administrator access to run Docker Desktop and a console as Admin

Linux requirements:
-64-bit Linux these versions or better: Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 7.7, CentOS 7, or Fedora 24 or better
