About this event

Join us for a presentation where John will share some lessons learned getting started with Kubernetes. This talk will focus on how to jump in and start learning Kubernetes from the perspective of a System Administrator. Topics will include installing a lightweight distro (Canonical's microk8s), concepts, operations and troubleshooting, security hardening, and some of the more interesting failure modes I've come across so far.
