People talk about Kubernetes as if it is a single, opaque system and rarely dig in to see what makes it tick. This isn’t the standard talk about why you need Kubernetes or how to deploy into it. Instead, join me to demystify some of the inner workings of a Kubernetes cluster. Learn what actually deploys containers, what decides where they should go, and understand the component that handles the famous scaling of containers.
We will build up a mini cluster one Kubernetes component at a time, explore why we need them, and gain a better sense of what happens to all those YAML files you throw at it.
