What is Kubernetes (K8S)?:  

Kubernetes is an open source project for managing application containers from local to planetary scale. Originally developed by Google using 15 years of R&D, Kubernetes now flourishes in the open source community and has become the foundation for production cloud native solutions.

Our Meetup:  We have two great speakers lined up to tell  their story around Kubernetes.

Speaker 2: Nick Ethier, Container Addict, Jive Communications


How I Learned to Love Kubernetes

Kubernetes is a new shiny technology stack that is catching the eye of technologists like wildfire. While new tech is awesome and fun to experiment with, deploying and operating it in production is a whole other story. I’ll talk about how Jive deploys and operates their Kubernetes infrastructure across multiple location as well as a deeper dive into how some of the various components of a Kubernetes cluster work together.
