workshopIntroduction to the Virtual Kubelet

The open source Virtual Kubelet project provides an alternative implementation of the kubelet, which adds a virtual node to your Kubernetes cluster. This virtual node can be backed by a variety of providers, including serverless container infrastructure like Azure Container Instances and AWS Fargate. In this workshop, we'll explore how the virtual kubelet works and how to install it in your Kubernetes cluster. Then we'll look at providers and the different scenarios that can be supported.

workshopBuilding a provider for the Virtual Kubelet

The open source Virtual Kubelet project provides an alternative implementation of the kubelet, which adds a virtual node to your Kubernetes cluster. This virtual node can be backed by a variety of providers, including serverless container infrastructure like Azure Container Instances and AWS Fargate. In this workshop, we'll build on the "Introduction to the Virtual Kubelet" workshop. We will walk through what a provider looks like and then build our own. * It is recommended to have attended the "Introduction to the Virtual Kubelet" workshop before this one.
