Understanding Kubernetes in 10 minutes
Original document can be found here; written by Mike Schuette.
This document provides a rapid-fire overview of Kubernetes concepts, vocabulary, and operations. The target audience is anyone who runs applications in a cloud environment today, and who wants to understand the basic mechanics of a Kubernetes cluster. The goal is that within 10 minutes, managers who read this should be able to listen in on a Kubernetes conversation and follow along at a high level, and engineers should be ready to deploy a sample app to a toy cluster of their own.
This orientation doc was written because the official Kubernetes docs are a great reference, but they present a small cliff to climb for newcomers.
If you want to understand why you should consider running Kubernetes, see the official Kubernetes conceptual overview document. This doc
