Learn and Explore GKE Autopilot with Kelsey Hightower (full video)

Led by community members Guillaume Blaquiere (@guillaume blaquiere) and Antoine Castex (@antoine.castex) with special guest Kelsey Hightower, principal developer advocate at Google Cloud, this C2C Talks event focused on GKE autopilot. 

Introduced in February 2021, Autopilot is the latest major feature on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). It offers a new way to use, consume, and deploy a Kubernetes cluster where the nodes, master, and pool, are fully managed by Google.

  • The difference between Kubernetes and Google Kubernetes Engine (04:05)

  • Defining Autopilot and Google’s vision for this new feature (6:35)

  • How Autopilot stacks up against other container technologies (12:15)
