Workshop – Kubernetes Advanced

Kubernetes provides a set of more than thirty resource types out of the box and it takes some time to get the hang of that. Still, these gain new features with each release and with the popularity of the operator pattern, more and more custom resources show up in our Kubernetes clusters.

In this workshop we’ll focus on some more advanced topics, explain their background and how to use them to get a better overview and more confidence in the stability of a more complex Kubernetes setup.

Required audience experience

  • Running Minikube on a local laptop
  • Knowledge of microservice architecture
  • Knowing how to use Kubernetes and its basic resource types like Pod, ConfigMap, Secret, Deployment, Service, Ingress


  • Usage of Custom resources and operators on a monitoring setup
  • Application configuration management with jsonnet and kustomize
