Getting started with Kubernetes, Part 1: Introduction to YAML

Tech Talks
Thu, Apr 21, 9:00 AM (PDT)

About this event

Any modern web development, particularly when it comes to Kubernetes, is going to involve some work with YAML files. These files are used for configurations, definitions, and other purposes, and they can be both simple and aggravating. Fortunately, the concepts aren't complicated, and there are tools to help. In this workshop, Nick Chase provides you the skills you need to understand YAML from the bottom up, including:

- The basics of YAML structures such as key-value pairs and types

- Building on the basics with maps and lists

- Using more advanced features such as operators, anchors, and aliases

- Tools to make your life easier

You'll walk away from this workshop ready to create objects for Kubernetes, Swarm, or any other YAML-based system.
