As the world of technology continues to progress, so are the technologies that developers work with on the daily. Whether it’s cloud native, Kubernetes, serverless, or distributed architectures, every developer team has encountered the difficulties of working with them. Even more so, they’ve felt the challenges associated with trying to find the solutions to those same difficulties. But what if it was as easy as opening a book? Well, a virtual book, to be exact (or blog, or article, or even a youtube video, but I digress).
In our experience, it is. Gone are the days of having to understand the dewey decimal system to find one answer. Oftentimes when you’re creating a new feature, or fixing a bug, or simply trying to figure out what the heck is happening in your code…well, you just need answers, and you need to be able to get to them as quickly as possible.
To make your life easier, we’ve put together some of our top online authors, websites, and reads for that exact reason. Dive into the world of Kubernetes, cloud native, and serverless as we recommend our top digital places to go when you just need to know. So grab a coffee, settle in, because we’re going on a reading adventure.
Kevin Sookocheff, Distributed Systems
If you’re looking for information on anything from different architectures, distributed systems, to systems engineering, this is the best place to start. Peruse your way through the different topics. But if you’d like to know our favorite article? It’s the ‘A Guide to the Kubernetes Working Model’.
Dustin Specker, Kubernetes Insights
Dustin Specker is an independent blogger who likes sharing what he learns about Kubernetes with his readers. He began his journey back in 2013, with web technologies such as Ember.js, AngularJS and Node.js, and has recently transitioned to Kubernetes and Golang. When looking for Kubernetes updates, he’s one of the authors we always love to read.
If you’re looking for a good blog to start with, we recommend ‘IPVS: How Kubernetes Services Direct Traffic to Pods’.
Anais Urlichs, Kubernetes Tutorials
While she may not be blog-specific, she’s still a wealth of information. Anais, a CNCF and #100daysofkubernetes ambassador, is an inspiring and educational voice in the digital world of Kubernetes learning (and, of course, tech in general). With awesome and educational posts on Twitter and detailed Youtube tutorials, she’s definitely a space to go and check out.
Learnk8s, Kubernetes Training
Learnk8s is a company that offers Kubernetes training for engineers. While they’re great at what they do, they also have a running blog that teaches their wide audience on a variety of topics, such as troubleshooting Kubernetes deployments, developing and deploying Spring Boot microservices on Kubernetes, and so much more. Head over to read, because there’s a wealth of information there that’s relatively untapped.
DevOpsIsh, Tech News
DevOpsIsh is one of our favorite funnels of Kubernetes-focused information. Chris Short, a CNCF Ambassador and the curator of KubeWeekly, makes sure to update it on a weekly basis with all of the latest tech-related news, trends, and DevOps must-reads. If you’re not sure where to begin, we recommend checking out his weekly post and then doing a youtube-style deep dive from there. You never know where you’ll end up, but isn’t that the fun of it?
Liz Rice, Best Kubernetes Reads
Liz Rice does it all. She’s a one-stop-reading-shop for all Kubernetes and tech-related content. Not only is she the author of a few Kubernetes-focused books, she also runs a blog, joins podcasts, and gives some pretty awesome talks at various conferences. So whether you’re looking for something Kubernetes specific, or just some general tech-related content, she’s an awesome source of information.
Not to sound like I time travelled from the stone age, but the magic of the internet is that there is a perpetual wealth of information waiting just a few clicks away. So take advantage of it. We know we do. And for more Kubernetes, cloud-native, and serverless information, feel free to check out some of our following blogs we wrote too 😉
