Kubernetes is a topic on the agenda at most major tech businesses. Hailed as a game-changer by those that have adopted it, and dismissed as an expensive fad by those that have not, there is an awful lot of discussion around a platform that has become quite widely misunderstood. Working alongside Berlin-based Magic Sandbox, we hosted two K8s focussed webinar’s to bring a more rounded perspective of the tooling available to those who might have some interest in it, but haven’t had the opportunity to learn about it in a practical or meaningful manner.
Our first event, Kubernetes 101, was geared toward engineers and DevOps professionals who would be the day-to-day Kubernetes operatives, with MSB co-founder Mislav Stipetic leading an in-depth two-hour session into the practical uses and functionality of the platform. A unique chance to actually gain hands on experience without being side-tracked by too much theory, these are the kinds of sessions that allow users insight in to what advantages and disadvantages adoption could pose for their business, with upskilling essential to any successful investment.
On the back of that session, our second webinar – Organisation Benefits of Kubernetes – was pitched toward tech leaders who wanted to engage with more pragmatic discussion. With an expert panel secured, the sold out event not only featured Mislav Stipetic of Magic Sandbox, but the author of The Kubernetes Book and platform trainer Nigel Poulton, Chris Urwin (VP Field Engineering, Rancher Labs) and Chris Stephenson (VP Product and Engineering, Humanitec), who each brought their own unique perspective to the discussion
A fantastic event that shed some real insight in to how Kubernetes can be adopted within organisations, the talk directly answered all of the main questioned most often asked of the platform – the panel touched on costs, upskilling, DevOps, adoption, open source and deciding whether or not your business is in the right place to make the most of the technology, as well as several questions posed by our audience during the webinar.
Now available to be watched back – see above – we’d like to again thank our panel for their time, and encourage anyone with any further questions to please get in touch, and we’d be happy to facilitate getting those answered for you by any one of our panellists!
