This workshop prepares web and application developers to build applications using Containers, Kubernetes, and OpenShift. We’ll start with a short introduction to containers and Kubernetes, which are the foundation of OpenShift.

Using hands-on exercises, we will walk you through tasty menu of applications and uses cases for OpenShift. How about showing you how easy it can be to deploy your pre-built containers? Maybe showing how health checks so OpenShift can heal your application. Let’s dig in to build containers by just giving a git repository. Want to see easy application scaling - no problem! Wish you could do A/B deployment - your wish is our command. Finally we will show you a complete microservice application with DB and polyglot backed services. You bring your curiosity and willingness to code and we will teach all you need to go home and start building pure awesomeness on OpenShift.
