Container orchestrators based on Kubernetes are increasingly used for application deployment. Several applications have been deployed using these technologies, as for example CERN GitLab, central web hosting and some ATLAS analysis.

We will cover the entry-level for both application developers and system administrators who are interested in knowing how to start and deploy an application with Kubernetes or OpenShift and how to convert existing containerized applications into [operators](

Participants will be presented with a brief overview of Kubernetes concepts and an exploration of the Kubernetes API and client-libraries by the hand of the Red Hat experts.
