Kubernetes has a steep learning curve, but many teams need to learn Kubernetes – quickly. This talk will cover strategies for onboarding developers to Kubernetes, taken from DigitalOcean’s Developer Education team – the producers of DO’s Community tutorials – and the Digital Experience team, which develops and maintains the Community application.

This talk will discuss:

1. Core concepts and insights from DO’s new Kubernetes for Full-Stack Developers curriculum

2. An on-the-ground perspective taken from the Community Platform team’s migration from a traditional VM environment to Kubernetes.

Key takeaways will include:
1. How to onboard teams successfully by establishing knowledge baselines and effectively organizing, structuring, and delivering Kubernetes concepts
2. How to situate Kubernetes in a larger arc of application development and integrate it into an existing development workflow
