Managing Production workloads with Kubernetes

Sanchit Balchandani (~sanchit3)


Kubernetes has been a BIg buzzword for every developer from last few years, and also most of the companies these days are moving towards Kubernetes or Orchestration technologies to manage their workloads and deploy the microservices on Production Systems. So we'd like to grab this opportunity and help developers get started with Kubernetes and have a decent understanding by the end workshop that how Kubernetes can solve a lot of legacy problems which one may face while deploying and scaling things at the production level.

This would be a demo driven workshop with some required basics and we'd like to focus on defining things by relating things to real-time examples. Along with this, we'd provide demos on how to scale up applications with help of Kubernetes so that managing loads on Production Servers become easier.
