Workshop Big Data on Kubernetes - February 23-24, 2021 ONLINE


This two days workshop teaches participants how to use Kubernetes in AWS and run different Big Data tools on top of it.

During the course we simulate real-world architecture – data processing real-time pipeline: reading data from web applications, processing it and storing results to distributed storage. The technologies that we will be using include Kafka, Spark 3.0 and S3.

All exercises will be done on the remote Kubernetes clusters.


   Target Audience

Engineers who are interested in Big Data and Kubernetes.



Some experience with Docker and programming.


    Participant’s ROI

♦   Concise and practical knowledge of using Kubernetes
♦   Hands-on experience on simulated real-life use-cases
♦   Tips about real world applications and best practices from experienced professionals.


    Training Materials

All participants will get training materials in the form of PDF files containing slides with theory and exercise manual with the detailed description of all exercises. During the workshop exercises will be done on remote Kubernetes cluster. If you want to redo exercises later on your own you can use minikube.
