App Containerization & Kubernetes CICD Workshop
Three-day advanced cloud native workshop for developers

You run your apps on machines but your company is rolling out Kubernetes. You need to adopt the right way to containerize large scale corporate applications so you can deploy/scale them in Kubernetes.

We will assume that you have setup the Cloud Genius Workstation

Containerize this

  • Concept brief:
    • virtualization vs containerization
    • monolithic apps vs cloud native micro-services
    • Kubernetes architecture
  • We will use a variety of open source apps written in several popular languages: java, python, ruby, go, node aka javascript, dotnet, erlang, php, rust, swift
  • You will be able to learn the patterns and concepts from the workshop and apply those to your internal corporate apps, carefully containerize the monolithic ones into cloud-native micro-services without sharing any info with anyone outside your company
  • Manage app secrets and runtime environment variables for your apps in Kubernetes
  • Persist app files, data, and databases in Kubernetes or use managed storage and database services in your enterprise

Deploy & scale that

  • Concept brief:
    • Helm, Draft, Gitkube, Metaparticle, Skaffold
    • How to break the YAML wall & speak YAML with Kubernetes
  • Identify apps and micro-services that are closely related and orchestrate theat relationship composition as a meaningful collection running in containers
  • Package your app images in YAML files for Kubernetes
  • Expose your apps to your users via your chosen domain/url using enterprise grade ingress
  • Secure your apps with a proper TLS certificate auto-generated and managed as a Kubernetes secret

Automate end-to-end

  • Concept brief:
    • CICD: travis, circleci, jenkins, gitlab, aws, codeship, azure, google, ibm, atlassian et al
  • Iteratively build a CICD pipeline to accomplish the precise outcome you want
  • Integrate your enterprise apps in your continuous integration, continuous delivery CICD pipeline
  • Automate the monitoring your apps' performance in Kubernetes using Prometheus and Grafana

For this hands-on workshop, you need:
  • Three Saturdays at a quiet place with good internet connection
  • A modern 64bit computer with 8GB RAM or more running Windows or macOS or Linux. Machines with 4GB RAM might also work but it will make things painfully slow. Don't waste your time dealing with hardware constraints. Also, avoid using computers issued by your employer as these are typically locked down, highly likely to frustrate you and waste your time while everyone else is proceeding forward with hands-on exercises in the workshop
  • Cloud Genius Workstation installed on your personal computer
  • Contact us via the chat widget below well ahead of schedule if you need install/setup help. At the start, we will assume that you are all setup and ready
  • A domain name that you own and have control over its DNS zone. NameCheap and GoDaddy seem to offer names for dirt cheap https://www.namecheap.com/promos/amazing88s/ You need just a domain name for a dollar and change for the first year. You can cancel after that. And, please do NOT buy any other domain related services

Certifications are the last thing on our mind.

After the programs, Cloud Genius certification can be a line at the bottom of your résumé or your LinkedIn profile…

...or it can show up the way you walk into a room.

It can be something people perceive in the way you talk, in the way you make judgement calls, the way you deliver results. People take notice when you show up.

I’ve heard more than a few alumni tell me that their team treats them differently now, because they walk through the world differently.

These things can’t be captured on paper.

Whether you know it or not, these hard intangible skills along with core technical skills matter everyday to how people perceive you and how powerfully you show up and deliver results.

PS: If you are looking to put in the effort needed and be a Cloud Genius, you’ll have to work for it. There are no shortcuts. Me and my team will be here when you’re ready.
