As organizations undergo a digital transformation, cloud migration now more than ever remains a high priority for those looking to expand their business and remain top competitors in their field. But how do companies develop and deploy in the cloud without fear? What is really needed to secure your cloud accounts, and develop your engineers’ innovation all while adhering to industry-wide security best practices? On Thursday, May 27th, discover the solution to those questions and more during our latest webinar where we present our unique framework, Cloud Guardian.
This past year Vallery Lancey and I have been working on a Kubernetes Networking Book. I am proud to announce that we have an early release of Chapters 1-3 of the book available on O’Reilly Digital platform. Kubernetes Networking is an essential guide for anyone who wants to deploy, manage, or troubleshoot a production-scale Kubernetes network. Understanding Kubernetes clusters isn’t enough to operate Kubernetes at scale. Every layer of the stack–the network, operating system, and Kubernetes–depends on the layer below.
I’ve spent the last year created a course for A Cloud Guru. With 3.4 hours of content and 36 lessons, I look forward to your feedback. Here is my “Advanced Networking with Kubernetes on AWS” Course. Since its release in 2014, Kubernetes has become the de-facto standard for container orchestration. Kubernetes is a distributed system for managing containers and its networking is no different. Many companies are deploying Kubernetes on-prem and in the cloud, both managed offerings and self-deployed.
Slides: https://www.slideshare.net/jstrong09/kubernetes-do-or-do-not-there-is-no-try In this webinar Gregory Patmore and I covered: Getting started with Kubernetes - laying the foundations for success Clusters: Set up, security and operations Best practices for container and Kubernetes adoption Securing containers Optimising application development in Kubernetes environments
KubeCon San Diego Recap KubeCon had a great turnout this year with 12,000 attendees that filled the San Diego Convention center. Three things stood out to me: Security, Network, and Community. The community was a big theme at this event and in many of the keynotes. From David’s talk about non-code ways to contribute to CNCF’s projects. Kelsey Hightower’s keynote on how we could never have done this as an individual or a single company.
Another year! Another amazing Code PaLOUsa come and gone. Location This year Code PaLOUsa was at the Hyatt Regency, which is smack dap in the middle of downtown. This location makes it a perfect spot for all the speakers and conference-goers to experience some of the tourist spots in Louisville and still enjoy the conference. Sessions The sessions were action-packed, as well. A (useful?) attribute of a conference is the level of difficulty for goers to decide which speakers to see!
I have begin working on Deep Dive into Kubernetes Networking, Let me know your thoughts about what you want to see. https://strongjz.github.io/k8-networking/#/
In April, we kicked off [Kubernetes and Cloud Native Computing Louisville](https://www.meetup. com/Kubernetes-and-Cloud-Native-Computing-Louisville/) I presented an “Intro to Kubernetes”, here is a link to the presentation More about that Meetup here Recording
The inaugural Kubernetes and Cloud Native Computer Louisville will be on April 4th. I will be presenting an “Intro to Kubernetes” https://www.meetup.com/Kubernetes-and-Cloud-Native-Computing-Louisville/events/259202067/
At Dev Nexus 2018 my co-worker, Adarsh, and I led a workshop “Introduction to Kubernetes” Introduction to Kubernetes is a hands-on, interactive workshop giving attendees a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of Kubernetes. As part of this workshop, you will learn how Kubernetes works, be able to successfully create a kubernetes cluster, deploy microservices to that cluster & also hear about some war stories. https://contino.github.io/intro-k8/ Developer density @devnexus! First class speakers!
On December 29th I completed my final goal of the year - I passed the CKA. TL;DR This is a list of the bare minimum necessary to try to pass. Do Kelsey Hightower’s tutorial Kubernetes The Hard Way at least three times! Understand it, internalize it. Do all the tasks on https://kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/ Read Kubernetes in Action by Marko Luksa Also practice, practice, and practice. Did I mention practice? This is a practical exam, no multiple choice questions here.
