[Online Workshop] What is Knative?


July 14, 2020

From developers, for developers.

If you search for the term ‘Knative’ you will find it very often together with the term ‘Serverless’. The Knative web site says that it is made up of “components build on top of Kubernetes, abstracting away the complex details and enabling developers to focus on what matters. It solves the ‘boring but difficult’ parts of deploying and managing cloud native services so you don’t have to.” So what is it?

Knative has two components: Serving and Eventing. In this online hands-on workshop we will look into Knative Serving. We will use OpenShift Serverless (Red Hats version of Knative) and run it on OpenShift.

Topics of this workshop include:
– Installing Knative / Serverless using an Operator
– Deploying an example app
– Traffic Management
– Auto-Scaling
– Some Debugging

To attend this workshop it would be helpful if you had some previous knowledge around Kubernetes and a Service Mesh like Istio.
