Complexity in our software installations increases over time; this is a law of physics (along with how “working in production” means “this will ideally last until the heat death of the universe”). Let’s talk about open source tools we can use for operable software on Kubernetes. Helm is a widely used package manager for applications deployed on Kubernetes. Draft streamlines the inner loop of local development and Brigade allows us to create event-driven pipelines. Duffle implements the Cloud Native Application Bundle spec to install and manage distributed apps for k8s and beyond, while Porter makes authoring such app bundles easier.
Code snippets and demos will add to this whirlwind overview of how to gather your party of adventurers; you’ll leave with a clear picture of how to operate your software in a Kubernetes ecosystem (and avoid being eaten by a grue).
