Feedback form is now closed.
Join this workshop and accelerate your journey to production-ready Kubernetes by learning the practical techniques for reliably operating your software lifecycle using the GitOps pattern. The Weaveworks team will be running a full-day workshop, sharing their expertise as users and contributors of Kubernetes and Prometheus, as well as followers of GitOps (operations by pull request) practices.

Using a combination of instructor led demonstrations and hands-on exercises, the workshop will enable the attendee to go into detail on the following topics:
• Developing and operating your Kubernetes microservices at scale
• DevOps best practices and the movement towards a “GitOps” approach
• Building with Kubernetes in production: caring for your apps, implementing CI/CD best practices, and utilizing the right metrics, monitoring tools, and automated alerts
• Operating Kubernetes in production: Upgrading and managing Kubernetes, managing incident response, and adhering to security best practices for Kubernetes

• Basic knowledge of Kubernetes is required. At a minimum practical experience experimenting with Kubernetes is required
• You have deployed a few applications to a test cluster, and now want a path forward of how to use Kubernetes in production
• Familiarity with the Unix command line
• A complete cloud lab environment will be provided, so bring laptop with a modern browser

This workshop doesn’t cover:
• Deep knowledge of the Prometheus Query Language. We’ll be working through practical examples, but won’t cover the rest of PromQL
• Kubernetes Introduction and concepts. We won’t be going through an overview of Kubernetes, instead we focus on application in the real world.

• Welcome & introduction
• Getting started with your environment
• What is “Production Ready” (cluster & app checklist)
• Monitoring a production cluster (Prometheus & Observability)
• Building for observability (HPA, Istio Canary, FluentD & Prometheus)
• Declarative infrastructure in practice (GitOps model, Infra as code)
• Devops and GitOps in practice (CI/CD pipelines, compliance tracking)
• Advanced Deployment Patterns (Canary, Blue/Green, A/B testing)
• Security best practices (RBAC, Kubernetes security groups, network policies)
• Node management and Kubernetes upgrade

Lunch, refreshments and snacks will be provided.
