About the Talk

Watch as Kathleen 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.


About the Presenter

Kathleen Juell is a Developer on the DODX team at DigitalOcean. She co-designed and contributed to the new Kubernetes for Full-Stack developers curriculum, and worked on migrating DigitalOcean’s Community Platform to Kubernetes. This talk is a blend of perspectives from both of these workflows.
