Kubernetes is a popular application scheduler and orchestration tool, but its built-in secret storage does not provide the robustness many organizations require. In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn how to connect applications and services running under Kubernetes to HashiCorp Vault.
In this workshop, you will look at the process of developing a proof of concept (POC) that incorporates various Azure features to support a highly scalable microservices architecture based on Service Fabric and Azure Functions. By the end of this workshop you will be better able to design, deploy and monitor solutions based on Service Fabric and Azure Functions, in conjunction with several other Azure features.
Cloud Builders’ Day is a full day long hands-on workshop, which focus on cloud technologies (AWS) and other popular IT technologies which are being used by companies around the world to build new and modern applications.
Workshop is addressed to people who are just beginning their adventure with the cloud (or even don’t know nothing yet!) or simply want to expand their knowledge about new IT topics. If you are an architect, developer or a specialist dealing in data analysis this workshop is for you!
To participate in the workshop, you only need to have your own laptop – no other requirements. The workshops are held in English and are in hands-on mode – the ‘slide’ part is only about 10% of the total, 90% – is about doing, doing, doing!
