Kubernetes The Fun Way
2020-04-01, 11:45–12:15, Track 1 (UTC)

Kubernetes the Fun Way is a collection of case studies and demos in which Kubernetes and other cloud-native technologies are explored in unrealistic and (somewhat) ridiculous scenarios. The purpose is to create a fun and inclusive learning environment


Each of the case studies is accompanied by a demo, lessons learned and videos/gifs which are supposed to look fun:

  • Running a Kubernetes cluster on Arm64 single board computers in my living room and creating a ceph pool managed by Rook using USB Flash Drives just to run a Wordpress blog;

  • Building a Kubernetes operator for drones, attaching worker nodes to the drones, and launching them in the air;

  • Using a mobile app to trigger vm shutdowns in order to test the resilience of "cloud-native" applications;

  • The fourth one is still under development and will be about creating your own Kubernetes as a Service using Typhoon K8s.
