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.
