Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll deploy the Quarkus catalog on a Kubernetes cluster powered by minikube. Taking on the role of a software engineer for the Chill+ streaming site, you’ll seek to ensure your site can scale in a cost-effective manner once you deploy the Chill+ Catalog API on a Kubernetes cluster. You’ll use Quarkus extensions to package your application as a Docker image and generate the required manifest files to deploy on Kubernetes.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
