How to build and deploy a containerized app to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) | Azure Friday


Jay Gordon (@jaydestro) joins Donovan Brown (@donovanbrown) to show how to build a containerized React application and deploy it to production with Azure Kubernetes Service. He’ll also show how to configure an Azure Active Directory service principal to enable Role-Based Authentication, which enables you to dynamically create and manage other Azure resources.

  1. My question is: honestly, how many weeks did it take you to start to understand this concept you summed up in less than 15 mins video? this is a 4-hour course on Microsoft Learn, isn't it? Not to mention the number of codes to remember, you know that this is a complex subject. So please, don't pretend as if it's it a walk in the park. My personal take is, there's no way anyone would understand K8s from this video; so why even bother? On a positive note, it's good for a revision for those who already studied it and are preparing for some exam or something like that I guess. So, thank you for the demo.

  2. This video is for someone who is already clear with their basics and now wants to do some hands on. Thanks for this quick explanation. I had done some POCs on Docker, AKS and NGINX in 2019. After that I moved into a project where I worked on Azure DevOps. Now I have got a chance to work on AKS again and I needed to remember what I did back then. This was a quick way to brush up on my knowledge. 🙂

  3. this is skipping on everything that someone learning this would actually be interested. like how DO i create the required service principal? how do i connect the ACR to the AKS?
    all i've seen is you copy pasting commands and brushing over them (without really explaining)

    appreciate you taking the time, but its not really useful like that
