Application Development on Red Hat OpenShift

Free Book

Kubernetes Patterns ebook

With this book, you'll learn to create cloud-native applications with Kubernetes as a runtime platform and manage container and platform interactions. You’ll also learn how to apply configuration patterns to your Kubernetes-based applications, and how to build container images directly within the cluster.

OpenShift Interactive Tutorials


Getting started with OpenShift

10 minutes | Beginner

Use the OpenShift Container Platform to build and deploy applications using both containers and orchestration.


Logging in to an OpenShift cluster

10 minutes | Beginner

Access and login to an OpenShift cluster using the web console and command line, then add collaborators on your projects.


Developing with odo

10 minutes | Beginner

Use OpenShift Do (odo), a CLI tool for developers, to manage application components on the OpenShift Container Platform.


Deploying applications from images

15 minutes | Beginner

Deploy an application from an existing Docker-formatted image using the OpenShift web console and the command line using oc.


Deploying applications from source

20 minutes | Beginner

Deploy an application from source code contained in a Git repository using a Source-to-Image (S2I) builder using Python.


Connecting to a Database Using Port Forwarding

15 minutes | Beginner

Use the oc interactive shell to access a database, use port forwarding to temporarily expose a database outside of OpenShift, and access it from a database tool running on your local machine.


Using the CLI to Manage Resource Objects

15 minutes | Beginner

Use the oc command line tool to determine what resource objects have been created related to your application, and how you can query or update them.


OpenShift 4.5 playground

60 minutes | Beginner

Explore OpenShift 4.5 using this playground, which gives you access to an unstructured learning approach for experimentation.

Extend Kubernetes with supported Service Mesh and Serverless

Develop with OpenShift

CodeReady Workspaces

A collaborative kubernetes-native development solution that delivers OpenShift workspaces and in-browser IDE for rapid cloud application development.

CodeReady Containers

OpenShift on your laptop. CodeReady containers gets you up and running with an OpenShift cluster on your local machine in minutes.


A CLI tool for developers who are writing, building, and deploying applications on OpenShift. With Odo, developers get an opinionated CLI tool that supports fast, iterative development which abstracts away Kubernetes and OpenShift concepts, thus allowing them to focus on what's most important to them: code.

VS Code

Red Hat VS Code extensions allow software developers to use their favorite development environments within Red Hat technologies.
