This workshop is now full. However, please go ahead and still register – we will add you to the waiting list and be in touch. We are working to get more spots open! 


Wagora and 10x Future Technologies are partnering to bring you this cutting-edge and hands-on workshop!

Kubernetes is probably the most dominant technology of the last ten years, being used in roles across the tech industry from Infrastructure Engineers to Developers to Security.

Understanding why Kubernetes is so important to modern tech, and starting to interact with it, will give you a valuable point of reference for how the industry works, and how programming skills are becoming transferable to more roles outside pure development.

Who can attend?

  • This workshop is aimed both at people right at the start of a hands-on tech career, as well as those with experience in the industry
  • We recommend you’ve gone through a beginners’ hands-on programming course in any popular language so that you have worked with structured code before

What is the format?

This is a 2.5h interactive workshop. You will be working through a series of short exercises in groups of 3 or 4 (let us know at the start of the session if you are registering with a friend and want to work together). You will have access to the workbook and be able to follow at your own pace if preferred.

Learning objectives

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  •         Run a free, temporary Kubernetes test cluster in the cloud
  •         Explain what makes Kubernetes important
  •         Explain what Kubernetes pods, deployments and services do
  •         Configure a multi-tiered application and deploy it to Kubernetes
  •         Experiment with different types of failure and observe your application

You will be exposed to these concepts:

  •         Linux
  •         Networking
  •         Containers
  •         Infrastructure as Code
  •         DevOps

You will have the opportunity to discuss problems and ideas with other participants, and to ask questions to instructors who work with Kubernetes and other technologies on a daily basis.
