Create A CI/CD Pipeline With Kubernetes And Jenkins

CI/CD is a term that is often heard alongside other terms like DevOps, Agile, Scrum and Kanban, automation, and others.

From the K8s Community

Raspberry Pi Kubernetes mini PC cluster project member Krishnaraj Varma has published a great Raspberry Pi Kubernetes project with an intermediate skill level and 60 minutes build time. Using a Raspberry Pi 3 and the Raspbian operating system preloaded on a 16 GB microSD card the project takes you through the step-by-step process of creating your very own Raspberry Pi cluster as well as installing the Kubernetes dashboard for monitoring the cluster. I have also embedded a quick video to explain more about the Raspberry Pi Kubernetes clusters if you are a beginner.

How to Deploy ML Workflows on LKE with Kubeflow

Teams that work with Machine Learning (ML) workloads in production know that added complexity can bring projects for a grinding halt. While deploying simple ML workloads might seem like an easy task, the process becomes a lot more involved when you begin to scale and distribute these loads and implement tools like Kubernetes. Although Kubernetes allows teams to rapidly scale their organization's infrastructure, it also adds a layer of complexity that can become a major burden without the right tools.
