Evolve from Infrastructure as Code to Platform as Code with Kubernetes

Level: Advanced

Until recently, when building cloud-native platforms, companies typically started building out automation with infrastructure as code tools such as Terraform, Ansible, and the like. However, your platform doesn't stop at the infrastructure level. With the rise of Kubernetes, the trend towards platform as code is evolving and gaining traction. In this webinar hosted by Puja Abbassi and Fernando Ripoll, you will gain insight into how the market is evolving beyond using Kubernetes for its core functionality only and how you can take advantage of this trend.
