Learn to use Helm: the Kubernetes package manager

KUB 111-P9 Using Helm in the Cloud DevOps App LifeCycle on Platform9-hosted Kubernetes

Using the Kuberntes Package Manager with Kubernetes App Deployments | taught by Robert Starmer

Course description

So you've built your app. Or your database. Or whatever your workload is. Now you want to get it running, and you want to do it both quickly and elegantly.

Enter Helm, the "Kubernetes Package Manager."

Helm makes it super-easy to install standard workloads on Kubernetes. And with the magic of the integrated Helm Charts feature, it provides a model to describe even the most complex Kubernetes applications. The best part? It does all this repeatably and reliably.

In this course, you will learn in detail about the above-mentioned Helm features, how it integrates with Kubernetes and, perhaps most importantly, you will get hands-on experience with actually using Helm to deploy, upgrade, and manage an application.
