Google Kubernetes Engine: Zero to Secure Webapp

Kubernetes has become the de facto platform for hosting containerized runtimes at scale. However, it can be difficult to know where and how to start. Kubernetes managed by Google Cloud Platform can ease that process. Attendees of this six-hour workshop will receive a quick primer on Docker & K8s fundamentals and then begin at a blank GCP project to provision their own K8s clusters, configure HTTP load-balancing, deploy a trivial webapp, secure it with TLS from Let's Encrypt, and secure it with GitHub-backed OAuth. Minimal CI capabilities within GCP will also be demonstrated. This workshop requires only a laptop (any OS) and accounts on Github and GMail. No client-side setup is necessary.
