Continuous Integration and Delivery for Kubernetes

When using Kubernetes on IBM, you can benefit from CI/CD toolchain that is pre-integrated with your Kubernetes cluster. Such toolchain fully automates your application's deployment, thus significantly reduces the workload of DevOps people. Today, you will learn how to create and configure an open toolchain, then use it to set up automatic deployment of a simple Chat web app in Kubernetes cluster on IBM Cloud.

Date: Wednesday, October 20 from 16:00 to 17:30 Central European Time

This session is part of the IBM Developer Festival, day 3

DevOps practices we will show and use today include Git repository and continuous build. We will create a Kubernetes cluster and its pre-integrated toolchain. The toolchain will use our Git repo to automatically build our app's artifacts, check for vulnerabilities to build a secure container and deploy the app to Kubernetes cluster. No need for us to create Kubernetes objects such as pods, services, deployment or Ingress, the toolchain does all that work. When we want to update our app, all we need to do is commit changes to the Git repo and the toolchain will do the rest. 

Workshop format: technical presentation, demo and hands-on exercises.

Speaker: Aco Vidovic, Hybrid Cloud Build Team Leader, IBM Central & Eastern Europe

Audience: software developers, Kubernetes admins, DevOps
