Knative and the three Dwarfs

April 22, 2019 14:14

Reusable components that focus on solving many mundane but difficult tasks like orchestrating source-to-container workflows, routing and managing traffic during deployment, autoscaling your workloads, or binding running services to eventing ecosystems freeing developers to work on more interesting coding.

In this session, we’ll install Knative and its components and take an in-depth look into:

  • The building blocks of Knative—such as serving, building, and eventing ecosystems.

  • Demystify the deployment model that allows you to deploy your cloud-native Java services on Kubernetes and easily turn to serve them as serverless services.

  • Various deployment strategies, such as latest and pinned, and how to use Knative build to convert a source-to-URL (serverless service).

  • How to configure the scaling parameters that controls the scale to zero (Knative is configured to scale to zero only after some seconds)

We do have an exclusive Knative Tutorial, which teaches from basic to advanced with demos/exercises.
