Look inside

E-commerce company BuildYourHome has a modern, scalable, containerized e-commerce application running on Kubernetes. As a DevOps engineer, your task is to ensure that improvements—including new features, functionality, and deployment strategies—can be made without disrupting the user experience. You’ll walk through four different update approaches; replacement strategy, ramp up strategy, blue/green strategy, and canary strategy. When finished you’ll have a solid grasp on the nuances of all four strategies and understand the use cases for each.

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