New to Docker or Kubernetes and finding yourself lost in the key concepts like containers, images, pods, and more? If this is you, we have a special set of intro's that'll give you a better understanding of k8s and how each part is made.

Already a k8s pro but a k8s code n00b? Keep an eye out for 'A tour into k8s's code'. Know plenty of kube, but confused when it comes to schedulers? Then be sure to read 'how kubernetes is transforming into a universal scheduler'.

Issue #31

Sometimes a high-level view of something can help you understand it more. In this article, Tom Gallacher explains some key concepts that'll allow you to enter the kubernetes realm in the simplest way possible.

If you’ve ever wondered why cloud native computing and microservices are such popular topics then check out this detailed article from Chris O’Brien. He'll tell you excatly why that is, and explain how Kubernetes has become a key player in making the web faster, stable, and more open.

Do you know the key concepts in Kubernetes but are unsure how to use them? The OpenShift team has come to the rescue with their hands-on introduction to Kubernetes! Learn how to launch or create a pod, and explore other tools you’ll need to develop a fully-functioning Kubernetes cluster.

What is a scheduler and what does Kubernetes even schedule? Yes, it schedules pods and nodes based on the “resources” available and constraints applied. But how is that abstraction quickly empowering a universal scheduler on universal resources? Find out here thanks to The New Stack.

Oh Kubectl, how do you work anyway? Ever thought about what happens when you 'kubectl apply -f stuff.yaml'? Enter Naeil Zoueidi’s tour from cmd to code, looking at builders, dooers and more - the primary abstractions of k8s code base. Have fun!
