Feedback form is now closed.
Kubernetes is quickly becoming indispensable for managing and deploying workloads on distributed systems across both cloud and on-prem environments.
 While most people are now familiar with how to use Kubernetes, few are aware of the “why” behind it? Why does the Kubernetes API look the way it does? Why do Kubernetes components only interact with each other through the Kubernetes API? Why is there a PersistentVolumeClaim object when you could easily reference a volume directly from a pod?
 To answer these questions and help you develop a deeper understanding of Kubernetes, this talk exposes the principles underpinning the design of Kubernetes.
