Developing applications with Kubernetes

Kubernetes is a system for managing container based applications.  Kubernetes empowers developers to utilize new architectures like microservices and serverless that require developers to think about application operations in a way they may not have before. These software architectures can blur the lines between traditional development and application operations, fortunately Kubernetes also automates many of the tedious components of operations including deployment, operation and scaling. For developers Kubernetes opens a world of possibilities in the cloud, and solves many problems, paving the way to focus on making software.
