    • Workshop - Kubernetes Using and extending the Kubernetes API programmatically Stefan Schimanski & Michael Hausenblas

      Kubernetes is the de-facto industry standard for container orchestration. In this workshop you’ll learn how to program Kubernetes using Go. We will start with the basic concepts (pods, namespace, labels, workloads, nodes, events, etc.) and provide step by step guidance how to implement a variety of tasks against the Kubernetes API with the Go programming language. The two main Go libraries used in this workshop will be https://github.com/kubernetes/client-go as well as https://github.com/openshift/client-go in addition to the Go standard library. For each participant, access to a Kubernetes cluster will be provided, and it is beneficial if you have the latest Go version installed on your laptop in order to follow along. We will provide a GitHub repo with all code samples used in the workshop.
