Helm is the official package manager for Kubernetes. This session introduces Helm and illustrates its advantages over “kubectl” with plain Kubernetes manifests. We will learn about its architecture and features, such as lifecycle management, parameterizability using Go templating, chart dependencies, etc. Demos will explain how all the bits and pieces work together. Besides, an outlook on the upcoming Helm 3 major release will be provided as well as tips and tricks for testing and hosting Helm charts.
