Kubernetes - going beyond the basics

So you've got a good grasp of the Kubernetes basics, you can create a cluster and deploy some applications to it, what about taking things up a notch?

In this talk we'll cover (and demo) some more advanced topics within Kubernetes such as:-

Influencing the scheduling of pods
Controlling applications being scheduled using admission controllers
Options for extending/customising Kubernetes using Custom Resources
Auto scaling of applications and clusters including virtual node
Time allowing a brief discussion around how a service mesh may help improve traffic shaping

After this talk attendees should have a much clearer understanding of the additional capability in Kubernetes and associated platforms that they may want to use to improve their application platform.

Attendees should have a good understanding of the basic Kubernetes concepts and constructs.
