In this workshop, attendees get hands-on experience using Kubernetes and Kops (Kubernetes Operations), as described in our recent blog. Attendees learn how to provision a cluster, assign role-based permissions and security, and launch a container. If you're interested in learning best practices for running Kubernetes on AWS, don’t miss this workshop.
We have a packed 2.5 hrs worth of self-guided hands-on tutorials to get you started with Kubernetes using AWS best practices. This workshop provides instructions to create, manage, and scale a Kubernetes cluster on AWS, as well as how to deploy applications, scale them, run stateless and stateful containers, perform service discovery between different microservices, and other similar concepts.
One of the prerequisites is to create an AWS Account beforehand so that you can get started quickly. We recommend to create an Account at least few days before reInvent.
Here is the info on creating and activating your AWS Account: https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/create-and-activate-aws-account/
Also, try launching an EC2 instance (t2.micro) and terminate it after you see successful launch. We will be handing out AWS credits after you complete the workshop and exit the room.
We are excited to see you at reInvent and are looking forward to diving deep into Kubernetes and its ecosystem of products on AWS.
