Kubernetes is getting popular by the day, and is probably one of the hottest buzzwords of 2018.
With names like eBay, Goldman Sachs, Huawei, ING, SAP, and many others listed as corporate users, it is surely a technology which has got a consolidated place in our industry.
At the same time, Kubernetes got the infamous nomea of being hard to understand. Mostly due to rumors, but some other times it has been proven to be easy to get wrong, like experienced by the Monzo team a few months back:
I still remember the sense of confusion when I decided I wanted to get a better understanding of Kubernetes, as I felt like I didn’t know where to start, or what to tackle first.
In this post I will try to demystify the perception by which Kubernetes is believed to be too hard to even get started, by walking through the journey I undertook to get the basics first, and later to focus on the security aspects.
Hopefully this will help a little in your own journey to understand Kubernetes.
