About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts!

We are happy to announce the March New York City Kubernetes Meetup (#NYCk8s) will be on Wednesday, March 30th at the Harvest offices in the Flatiron. 

We are excited to welcome the author of O'Reilly's Leaning OpenShift, Grant Shipley from Red Hat. He will show all of the work the OpenShift team have been doing on the open source project. This will include a full demo of the project to show how to create, deploy, scale, manage, and monitor pods for both development and production loads. 

Ray Tsang from Google will also be presenting. He'll give us a look beyond container orchestration with Kubernetes, also also take a deep dive into more advanced features like autoscaling. We'll look at: - How to access the Kubernetes API securely - The different Kubernetes resources, such as Pod, Replication Controller, Service, etc. - How to update/manage your entire cluster using the API. We'll demonstrate all of the concepts via a custom autoscaler that scales a stateful application using custom metrics!
