One of the reasons that Kubernetes has gained so much traction in the marketplace is because it is flexible enough to allow innovation to happen all around the core APIs. One area where that has happened is in application package management, specifically with the Helm project.
We sat down this week with Taylor Thomas, Software Engineer at Nike, and @HelmPack Maintainer. We walked through the basics of Helm technology, how it interacts with commonly use container tools and Kubernetes, as well as the how the Helm community is planning for the upcoming Helm v3 release. We also talked about the agenda for the upcoming Helm Summit in Portland.
