Helm 3 Preview: Helm 3 Alpha Release Available and What’s Next

Matt Fisher, Helm

This blog series highlights some of the big improvements coming to Helm 3 and a history of Helm. The full plan for Helm 3 includes features such as improved upgrade strategies, deeper integrations with OCI registries, and applying JSON schemas against chart values for validation purposes. We’re also taking a moment to clean up the codebase and updating parts that have languished over the last three years.

Kubernetes or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Container
Andrew Vaughan, what3words

As developers we want faster release-cycles in our pre-production and production environments, so we can introduce new features faster and roll back or forwards from issues. Moving to Kubernetes would shift our development away from building Operating System (OS) images and provisioning fresh Virtual Machines (VMs), to using Docker and Kubernetes in tandem to streamline local development and release-cycles to our operating environments.
