IBM Developer Event: Cloud Native Application Development with Kubernetes and OpenShift

November 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm EST

IBM Developer Event: Cloud Native Application Development with Kubernetes and OpenShift

NYC Blockchain Center and Founding Member IBM Developer Team cohost this series of developer events.


Please bring proof of RSVP and ID in order to attend.

Please bring a laptop to follow along if you can.



Cloud native revolutionized the way we look at app development and is now one of the most popular programming architectures. OpenShift alongside Kubernetes is changing the way teams look at deployments of these microservices. Kubernetes provides powerful production-grade orchestration for your microservices. In this workshop, you’ll get an overview of Kubernetes, and move directly into leveraging OpenShift to what it provides for application development. You’ll then go through the process of building and deploying a microservice application in this cloud native way. This is a hands-on-keyboard lab, everyone should come with a laptop and a desire to learn. Attendees can use OpenShift locally, but would prefer the free IBM cloud resources that will be provided.


In this workshop, we will go over…

– Overview and Kubernetes basics

– Building Container Image with OpenShift

– Deploying the application into OpenShift

– Upgrading and scaling the application with OpenShift

– Debugging your application in OpenShift


Get a head start on the lab and sign up for IBM Cloud via: ibm.biz/moficodes1125


Who should attend:

Anyone interested in getting a hands on overview of Kubernetes, and the advantages of using OpenShift instead of vanilla Kubernetes, whether they are interested in developing for the platform, or may need to support folks that are.


Take back to work:

The take away should be a firm understanding of the Kubernetes environment and using OpenShift’s workflow, and how one develops for it. It aims to expose some of the benefits of the platform so that people who are evaluating bringing it into their environment can have a deeper sense of what application development looks like on it.
