Call For Code: Tackle Responsible & Green Consumption With Kubernetes

April 29, 2021 2:00 pm UTC

Recycling and recovery are some of the more pressing challenges in addressing waste and shifting to a more circular economy.

We’ll show you how to deploy an application to enable producers and consumers to build and buy products in a sustainable way for our society, such as:
– By reducing waste and increasing the use of recycled materials
– By improving overall repairability of products

We’ll be using Kubernetes and IBM Watson Discovery to deploy this simple application build in React & Node.js.

Containers are a good way to bundle and run your applications. In a production environment, you need to manage the containers that run the applications and ensure that there is no downtime. Wouldn’t it be easier if this behavior was handled by a system?Kubernetes provides us a framework to run distributed systems resiliently. It takes care of scaling and failover for your application, provides deployment patterns, and more.

Where as Watson Discovery is an award-winning AI-powered intelligent search and text-analytics platform that eliminates data silos and retrieves information buried inside enterprise data.

In this event we will learn how to deploy a simple app that serves a Single Page Application (SPA) and communicates with IBM Watson Discovery on Kubernetes.
