Knative is a Kubernetes-based platform that comes with a set of building blocks to deploy and manage modern serverless workloads. Knative consists of two main components: Serving and Eventing. The session gives you an introduction into the Knative Serving and Eventing components and walks you through several demos with a focus on Knative serving. We will also get to know the brand new CLI client “kn” which allows interacting with Knative without writing a single line of YAML. Come to this session and see how Knative makes your Kubernetes life easier for managing stateless applications.
