W05 At the Helm of Kubernetes: Repeatable Infrastructure Creation for Mere Mortals


9:30am - 10:45am

Level: Introductory

As we get deeper into Kubernetes yaml files, we see a lot of duplication. Can we move to a higher level that eliminates this duplication? Let's look at Helm, a tool both for templating k8s yaml files and for installing complex infrastructure dependencies as one package. With Helm 3, we now have deeper integration and more security when working with Kubernetes. Join us on this path to a simpler, more repeatable, and more discoverable yaml experience.

You will learn:

  • How can I build a Helm chart from scratch?
  • How can I deploy a Helm chart, substituting config into place?
  • How can I package and distribute a Helm chart and how can I consume Helm charts built by others, substituting config into place?
