Meetup – Kubernetes with Minikube, NGINX and Helm Charts

We presented a Kubernetes-related Meetup on Wednesday 5th June in Edinburgh.

This time we explored setting up a local development environment for Kubernetes using Minikube and Helm Charts. We went on to deploy NGINX to the Cluster and scaled it up and down, then used Helm Charts to deploy Jenkins, WordPress and MariaDB.

The Peoples Postcode Lottery kindly hosted the event and provided the beer and pizza too! This was on Wednesday 5th June 2019 from 6:30 PM in the Peoples Postcode Lottery offices at 28 Charlotte Square in Edinburgh.

We have been planning this session for a while, and hope that it will become the basis for several future talks and ideas, including deploying Blockchain to a Kubernetes cluster, then adding a Ruby and Sinatra based application that will use it.
