Knowledge to learn: Kubernetes Azure AKS Terraform Helm Prometheus Grafana Skaffold


I built this tutorial when joining Sysdig to showcase my knowledge in containers, Kubernetes and cloud.

As usual, it has grown old, for example it mentions Helm v2, including the Tiller component, where at the time of writing this updated intro v3 is out that doesn’t require Tiller. Also, there are many improvements listed on each section, for ideas about how to improve the tutorial.

Tools used in the tutorial:
