Feedback form is now closed.

The Fedora "F" model outlines paths for Fedora desktop users to start with Fedora as a base desktop and grow into building container-based applications at scale, all using open source tooling and platforms.

One such platform is Kubernetes, which has skyrocketed to the top as the premier platform for managing containers at scale. But, let’s face it, diving into the world of Kubernetes and working with it can be intimidating, especially for those just starting their containerization journey. Local development environments tend to lack consistency with target Kubernetes environments, causing challenges in deploying and debugging your applications in production. How can you minimize this inconsistency and have a smoother transition for your application from your Fedora desktop into a production Kubernetes? Podman Desktop is the answer.

This talk will introduce Podman Desktop, a powerful, cross-platform and open source graphical tool that simplifies container development workflows. Compatible with multiple runtimes (Podman, Docker and others), it offers a user-friendly way to start with containers and smoothly transition to Kubernetes. Podman Desktop running on Fedora is your new stepping stone to Kubernetes.

In this demo, you will learn how this tool can guide you through the journey from application to containers, to pods, and finally to Kubernetes. We'll walk through the following workflows together:

- Creating a container
- Migrating containers from Docker
- Creating a pod
- Generating kubeconfig for a pod
- Deploying a pod to Kubernetes (via a free Developer Sandbox)

You will leave this talk with ideas and inspiration for diving into the world of containers and streamlining your container development process!
