The momentum behind Kubernetes continues to grow steadily. Originally designed by engineers at Google, Kubernetes (sometimes written as K8s) is an open source platform that automates container orchestration—deployment, management, and scaling. (Red Hat has published a clear and thorough overview of Kubernetes that’s worth checking out: What Is Kubernetes?)

Follow these folks online to grow your knowledge and skills, become part of the conversation, and stay close to the K8s community:
