Kubernetes patterns: Foundational, structural, config and advanced | DevNation Tech Talk

The way we design, develop and run applications on Cloud Native platforms as Kubernetes differs significantly from the traditional approach. When working with Kubernetes, there are fewer concerns for developers to think about, but at the same time, there are new patterns and practices for solving every-day challenges.

In this talk, we will look at a collection of common patterns for developing Cloud Native applications. These patterns encapsulate proven solutions to common problems and help you to prevent reinventing the wheel.

After a short introduction into the Kubernetes platform we will look at the following pattern categories:

  • Foundational Patterns describe basic patterns supported directly by Kubernetes
  • Structural Patterns are for structuring your Cloud Native application
  • Configuration Patterns provide various approaches to application configuration. ​​​​​​
  • Advanced Patterns which go beyond the basic concepts like extension hooks for extending the platform itself.
