Introduction to developing Krew plugins - A Deep Dive into Kubernetes Ecosystem


This talk is designed to introduce developers to the creation and development of Krew plugins for Kubernetes, the powerful open-source container-orchestration system. Krew plugins serve as an instrumental toolset that simplifies, streamlines, and augments the functionality of kubectl, Kubernetes' command-line interface. We will provide an overview of the Kubernetes ecosystem, and the role and importance of Krew plugins within it. Attendees will learn the basics of Krew plugins, from conceptual understanding to their practical application, including how to create, test, package, and distribute these plugins effectively. Additionally, this talk will include a hands-on walkthrough demonstrating the development of a simple Krew plugin from scratch. An insight into best practices for plugin development and a discussion of common pitfalls to avoid will round out the presentation. This talk is perfect for developers with basic Kubernetes knowledge looking to expand their skills and optimize their Kubernetes workflows with custom Krew plugins. Join us for a comprehensive understanding and get ready to plug into the Kubernetes world!
