Getting Started with Knative

by Mauricio Salatino on Feb 24 2020 in KubernetesCloud NativeKnative.

When building applications for Kubernetes, Zeebe can help you orchestrate several microservices. But how do you build those microservices in the first place? How do you connect them in a resilient way? Do you want to leverage the power of Functions as a Service in Kubernetes? The Knative Project was created to provide answers to these exact questions. While I was looking into how Knative will work with Zeebe, I realized it would be really helpful if I created some simple examples to demonstrate how Knative can help you in your projects. It will also help me explain how Zeebe and Knative will integrate and how they can be an amazing combination to build distributed systems.

For these reasons, I wrote this Getting Started with Knative blog post where you can find some examples on how to get started with a simple Hello World Knative Service that evolves into a more complex example using Cloud Events and the Knative Kafka Source.

In future blog posts, I’ll be exploring some of the Zeebe and Knative integration features and how you can get started building applications that can leverage zero down-scale in Kubernetes.
