iO Associates are delighted to bring you our next Java Virtual Meetup!

The topic of this session was ‘Kubernetes for Java Developers’, with guest speaker Rob Barr, Applications Development Senior Manager at Citibank.

Kubernetes is the definitive winner of the container orchestration wars. Originally created by Google and now maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, it is the de facto standard for automating scaling, provisioning and monitoring of modern cloud applications.

In this talk we delved into what K8s is and how to package and deploy your Java apps using technologies like Jib, Docker, Helm, Skaffold and Istio.
