Nice introduction to Kubernetes: "Getting Started with Kubernetes". pic.twitter.com/sNAy5Asgpq— Mario Carrion (@mariocarrion) January 23, 2017
Getting Started with Kubernetes (affiliate link) is a book written by Jonathan Baier and published by Packt Publishing in December 2015. This is my first Kubernetes book ever, and coincidently I got this one as well for only $5 during the holiday sale, just like I did with Monitoring Docker.
I’m learning all I can about Kubernetes, as a matter of fact I’m also watching the Scalable Microservices with Kubernetes course from Udacity, and I’m also planning to eventually get both Kubernetes in Action and Kubernetes: Up and Running.
I liked this introduction a lot, and honestly it is hard for me to give a bad opinion about this book because I don’t have any other books to compare to. The takeaways I get from this book is a lot of new projects:
- Heapster, fluentd and Grafana for logging, monitoring and log visualization.
- OCI, Open Container Initiative, and Cloud Native Computing Foundation this amazes me a lot, I wasn’t aware there were dedicated groups trying to come up with an standard.
- Tectonic, for administration, and StackDriver for monitoring.
- Twistlock,Kismatic and Deis, all three third party companies for running K8s in production.
Quick read and money well spent.
