What is Helm in Kubernetes? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Probably you already heard of Helm and Helm Charts when using or learning Kubernetes.

But what is Helm and a Helm Chart exactly? When and how to use it? And why it's so popular? 🤔

In this video I'll explain exactly that - the main concepts and features of Helm, the package manager of Kubernetes.

Overview of topics I cover:

  • Package Manager and Helm Charts
  • Templating Engine
  • Use Cases for Helm
  • Helm Chart Structure
  • Values injection into template files
  • Release Management / Tiller
  • Downsides of Helm

I'm happy to connect with you on 🙂
