Kubernetes is awesome. Kubernetes with Knative is EVEN better. And Knative In Action is THE guide to learning Knative!

Kelvin Johnson
Take the pain out of managing serverless applications. Knative, a collection of Kubernetes extensions curated by Google, simplifies building and running serverless systems. Knative in Action guides you through the Knative toolkit, showing you how to launch, modify, and monitor event-based apps built using cloud-hosted functions like AWS Lambda. You’ll learn how to use Knative Serving to develop software that is easily deployed and autoscaled, how to use Knative Eventing to wire together disparate systems into a consistent whole, and how to integrate Knative into your shipping pipeline.

About the Technology

The Knative toolkit is on the cutting-edge of technology, promising for serverless applications the same improvements that Kubernetes delivers for containers and microservices. Best of all, each Knative component is based on best practice standards deployed to production by Google, Pivotal, Red Hat, VMWare, IBM, and other leading cloud technology organizations.

About the book

Knative in Action shows you how to build more complex and capable serverless applications with Knative. You’ll start by getting up to speed with the basics of serverless computing, Knative’s design concepts, and the tricky problems that the toolkit works to simplify. Next, Knative expert Jacques Chester takes you through how to use Knative Serving to build your systems, baking in autoscaling, auto-updating, and easy deployment right from the start. From there you’ll learn how to use Knative Eventing to wire together disparate systems into an elegant, functional whole. Finally, you'll learn how Knative can be used to smooth your shipping pipeline, from initial development right through to monitoring your software in production.
