Introducing Kubelabs — An Ultimate Kubernetes101 Workshop — Collabnix

Yesterday I conducted Kubernetes workshop for almost 500+ audience at SAP Labs, Bengaluru (India) during Docker Bangalore Meetup #50. The workshop was targeted for Beginners & Intermediate level users. The labs were conducted completely on Play with Kubernetes Platform, shortly called as PWK. Play with Kubernetes is a labs site provided by Docker and created by Tutorius. It is a playground which allows users to run K8s clusters in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free CentOS Linux Virtual Machine running on the browser. Under the hood Docker-in-Docker (DinD) is used to give the effect of multiple VMs/PCs. It was a project hacked by Marcos Liljedhal during July 2017.

Kubernetes isn’t complex; Rather your business problems are.

Kubernetes is rather the simplest, easiest way to meet the needs of complex web applications. Kubernetes vastly simplifies onboarding & management of services. The service owner, be it a sysadmin, developer, or architect, can create a YAML/JSON file in the Kubernetes format. With Kubernetes, every system and every user speaks the same language. Said that, Kubelabs is one effort with an aim to simplify Kubernetes through hands-on labs and workshop.

Based on Docker community feedback, was born during early December 2019. Collabnix Slack members volunteered to contribute towards the labs and after 1 month of effort, Kubelabs was structured well and reviewed. Can’t wait to share that not a single issue was reported during the workshop. The platform is quite stable and open for all. Incredible, isn’t it?

Kubelabs is still under progress. New tutorials are welcomed every week and we are expected to cover almost all 101 series by the next Docker Bangalore Meetup.
