About the course

In this course, we will be learning Helm, the package manager for Kubernetes. We will start with the pre-requisites such as getting a Kubernetes cluster where we can install Tiller, the server-side of Helm, and ensure that our installation is working and that we are able to create a release.

We will then cover charts; these are the packages that Helm installs. We will cover the anatomy of a chart and how to make a chart from scratch. We will also show how to customize existing charts so that they can be used as templates for our own releases with Helm.
