Cloud Native DevOps with Kubernetes Ebook from NGINX

“Why should I invest my time in improving my Kubernetes skills?”

“Will Kubernetes really solve any of my teams’ problems?”

These two questions are among the most-asked of authors Justin and John whenever they are discussing cloud native and Kubernetes. That is why they have crafted a narrative that explains the necessary complexityof Kubernetes, why DevOps should seriously consider the benefits of running software on rented infrastructure, how to do it professionally, and what to do when something goes wrong. No prior knowledgehas been assumed in the concepts presented in the book. To help solidify the reader’s understanding, the concepts are then applied to some simple demo applications that can be followed (using code from our Github repo) in Chapter 2.
