Kubernetes with OpenShift 101: Exercises to get you started with a local OpenShift environment

In this first tutorial in the Kubernetes with OpenShift series, you learn how to install a local OpenShift environment on your machine using MiniShift. You also learn the basics on deploying and managing applications. This is the first in a series of hands-on workshops about using Kubernetes with Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud.

Minishift is a great way to try out OKD, the Origin Community Distribution of Kubernetes that powers Red Hat® OpenShift®. With Minishift, you can run OKD locally by launching a single-node OKD cluster inside a virtual machine. You can develop applications locally in a containerized OKD cluster.

This tutorial can help you understand Minishift, OKD, and Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud™. Check out the link at the end of this page to see a set of exercises. When you complete the exercises, you will know how to do the following tasks:

  • Install and set up Minishift.
  • Create OpenShift projects.
  • Create OpenShift applications.
  • Manage OpenShift applications.
  • Deploy an application to Minishift.
  • Train the network.
