IBM Developer Event: Introduction to Minishift

October 23, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm EDT

IBM Developer Event: Introduction to Minishift

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.


About the Event

Red Hat® OpenShift® is supported Kubernetes for cloud-native applications with enterprise security. Although Kubernetes has great scalability, workload portability and intuitive abstractions which allows you to separate business and developer concerns, it is still quite a concern to install, deploy and keep clusters operational.

Luckily for us developers, there is Minishift – a tool stack we can use locally on our dev machines and develop and test applications for cloud deployment to test/production Red Hat® OpenShift® environments.

In this workshop, we will run through a series of scenarios for creating, deploying and managing micro-services within an OpenShift single-node cluster using Minishift.



Before engaging in any of the labs, make sure you have correctly installed Minishift – https://docs.okd.io/latest/minishift/getting-started/installing.html


Please bring a laptop.
