Hands-on Helm

Jessica Deen gives a great introduction to Helm and then goes on the show the differences between Helm 2 and Helm 3.

Great news Helm has graduated.

Here goes nothing:

brew install helm

Watch again later:

Take aways:

  • Helm 3 has been rewritten to be more k8 native, simpler and more flexible.
  • There are changes to
    • cli
    • CRD
    • Release metadata
  • Also need to explicitly create namespaces.

Jessica Deen also demonstrates migrating with the use of helm-2to3 plugin
