AzureFunBytes Reminder - Demystifying @HelmPack with @DonovanBrown - 4/22/2021

AzureFunBytes is a weekly opportunity to learn more about the fundamentals and foundations that make up Azure. It's a chance for me to understand more about what people across the Azure organization do and how they do it. Every week we get together at 11 AM Pacific on Microsoft LearnTV and learn more about Azure.

When: April 22, 2021 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern
Where: Microsoft LearnTV

This week I welcome Captain America himself, Donovan Brown to discuss how to be a superhero to your Kubernetes clusters using Helm. We'll have a discussion on what made Donovan take interest in Helm and how he got started learning to use it. We'll also dive into Donovan's new role as Partner Program Manager in the Office of the CTO.

What is Helm? Helm is an open-source packaging tool that helps you install and manage the lifecycle of Kubernetes applications. Similar to Linux package managers like APT and Yum, Helm manages Kubernetes charts, which are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources.

From the Helm Project website: Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications — Helm Charts help you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes application.

Charts are easy to create, version, share, and publish — so start using Helm and stop the copy-and-paste.

Helm is a graduated project in the CNCF and is maintained by the Helm community.

Join us at 11 AM PST / 2 PM EST for the latest episode! We'll get you the information you need to start using Helm on Kubernetes.

Learn about Azure fundamentals with me!

Live stream is available on Twitch, YouTube, and LearnTV at 2 pm EST Thursday. You can also find the recordings here as well:
