It’s a way to schedule and orchestrate containers on a cluster of servers. The main use case is Docker, but Kubernetes also supports other containers engines.

The Hello NodeJS sample application was part of Benjamin’s workshop. Since I talk about it in the video, I decided to upload the code to Github.

Here’s a gist containing the necessary files:

View the code on Gist.

In short here’s what every file does:

There’s an interactive tutorial on the Kubernetes website that takes you on a journey to learn Kubernetes.
