This week I welcome Captain America himself, Donovan Brown to discuss how to be a superhero to your Kubernetes clusters using Helm. We'll have a discussion on what made Donovan take interest in Helm and how he got started learning to use it. We'll also dive into Donovan's new role as Partner Program Manager in the Office of the CTO.

Some of our agenda:

  • We are going the cover the importance of truly learning a tool versus just using it.
  • We will start with an empty folder and build a helm chart file by file making errors along the way.
  • Then we will show you a full chart that you will now be able to read and understand.

What is Helm? Helm is an open-source packaging tool that helps you install and manage the lifecycle of Kubernetes applications. Similar to Linux package managers like APT and Yum, Helm manages Kubernetes charts, which are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources.

From the Helm Project website: Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications — Helm Charts help you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes application.

Charts are easy to create, version, share, and publish — so start using Helm and stop the copy-and-paste.

Helm is a graduated project in the CNCF and is maintained by the Helm community. We'll get you the information you need to start using Helm on Kubernetes.
