About this event

Welcome to the November edition of the Bay Area Kubernetes Meetup!

At this month’s meetup, Ian Chakeres, Silvia Xu, and Federico Bongiovanni will be facilitating a beginner's workshop about building and running Kubernetes on a Cloud VM.

Dr. Ian Chakeres enjoys building cloud software teams, products, and technology. At Google he's making it possible monitor, manage, and enforce policies across all your Kubernetes clusters, whether in the cloud or on-prem. Ian holds an MBA from the University of North Carolina KFBS, a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara, a MS in Electrical Engineering from the Ohio State University, and a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Ohio State University.

Silvia Xu is a software engineer in Google's Kubernetes team. She's working on making it easy to manage lots of Kubernetes clusters consistently, including hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Federico Bongiovanni is half Italian, half Argentine, and his love for computers and programming started on a Commodore 64 when he was eight. He's currently the manager and a member of the Kubernetes API Machinery team at Google.

In this hands-on 1-hour session, we go through building and running Kubernetes on a Cloud VM. Experts will be on-hand to help you get through any issues that you encounter. No preparation needed.
We’ll walk through the following steps: login to the VM; install and configure the dependencies; download the source code; build the executables; and finally, run Kubernetes.

Bring a computer with ssh installed; be comfortable with the Unix command line; and if you want to build on your machine instead of a VM, please install and configure docker beforehand.
