This book started in March 2017. It records my journey of learning and using Kubernetes from scratch. It focuses on experience sharing and summary. At the same time, it also has related concept analysis. I hope to help everyone step less and pit. The detour will also guide everyone to pay attention to the Kubernetes ecological surroundings, such as microservices construction, DevOps, big data applications, Service Mesh, Cloud Native and other fields.
Before reading this book, I hope you have the following knowledge and prepared the following environment:
The topics of this book are not limited to Kubernetes, but also include the following major topics:

You can use this book in the following ways:
Note: The Service Mesh related content in this book is no longer maintained, please go to istio-handbook to browse.
If you want to learn Kubernetes and cloud-native application architecture but do not want to build and configure a cluster yourself from scratch, you can directly use the kubernetes-vagrant-centos-cluster project to directly deploy a 3-node distributed cluster and other such as Heapster , EFK, Istio and other optional components, or use a more lightweight cloud-native-sandbox to run single-node Kubernetes, Istio and other components on a personal computer using Docker.
Thank you for your contributions to this book!
