You have some modular code with a REST API. You are on your way to Microservices. Next, you package it in a container image that others can run. Simple. Now what?

Who starts it? What monitors its health? What about antifragility? Updates? Networking? Oh my.

Don't get flustered. We will explore how Kubernetes simplifies the complexity of distributed computing.

This session will help you understand the terms, architecture and the mechanics of the Kubernetes tools. You will understand how to target your applications to a seemingly complex distributed compute platform.
