A scheduler ought to be enough

45 minute intermediate seminar


Kubernetes can be time-consuming to maintain and comes with a steep learning curve, especially for smaller teams. What are the alternatives? In this session, I will introduce you to Nomad, a cluster management and scheduling solution that is designed with the Unix philosophy of having a small scope while composing with tools like Consul for service discovery, Vault for secret management or Traefik as an edge router. I will guide you through the process of setting up a cluster and give you some insights on how to deploy to the cluster from your build pipeline.
