From Zero to Production: Building and managing Kubernetes clusters on AWS using Terraform and Flux

This workshop will provide an in-depth look at how to build cloud infrastructure for Kubernetes on AWS using Terraform and manage it using the Flux GitOps framework.


Participants will learn how to set up and configure an AWS account, use Terraform to create and configure Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), and deploy and manage applications on EKS using Flux GitOps.

The workshop will also cover best practices for securing and scaling a Kubernetes cluster on AWS.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have a solid understanding of how to build and manage a cloud-based Kubernetes infrastructure on AWS using Terraform and Flux GitOps.
