# Kubernetes & Cloud Native Online Meetup #2

Last Friday on 3rd April'20, we did the 2nd meetup of Kubernetes & Cloud Native online meetup. In this meetup we covered two topics:-

This time ~180 participants did RSVP and ~70 showed up during the live event. In my session I covered some of the basic kubectl commands which we can use to debug and monitor applications & the cluster. Then I showed a quick demo of Prometheus and Grafana.

After that Prasad introduced us BotKube, which is like a chatbot to provide realtime monitoring, debugging and alerting for the apps and one/more k8s clusters. He demoed its installation, integration with Slack, application's montioring & debugging, existing filters and connecting to more than one cluster. He also gave us pointers to write custom filters and its roadmap. Recoeding of the event is available at following:-

• Enabling Single Sign On(SSO) Kubernetes with OIDC
• Understanding Requests & Limits
• State of Storage Orchestration using Kubernetes

• Managing Kubernetes with Ansible
• And many more

And we would need volunteers to pick up topics from above and present. Do let me know if you or someone else would be interested to present. Looking forward to see you in next online meetup !! So join the meetup group now.
