Effective Kubernetes Onboarding
About the Talk
Watch as Katy Juell shares how the DigitalOcean Community Platform team migrated from a traditional virtual machine (VM) environment to Kubernetes.
Kubernetes has a steep learning curve, but many teams need to learn Kubernetes – quickly.
This talk covers strategies for onboarding developers to Kubernetes, taken from DigitalOcean’s Developer Education team – the producers of DO’s Community tutorials – and the Community Platform team, which develops the Community application.
What You’ll Learn
- Core concepts and insights from DigitalOcean’s new Kubernetes for Full-Stack Developers curriculum
- How to onboard teams successfully by establishing knowledge baselines and effectively organizing, structuring, and delivering Kubernetes concepts.
- How to situate Kubernetes in a larger arc of application development and integrate it into an existing development workflow.
