Tigera: Amazon EKS Blueprint Workshop

Tigera: Amazon EKS Blueprint Workshop


Join us in this monthly EKS Workshop series to learn how the EKS Blueprints can accelerate your adoption of Amazon EKS. The EKS Blueprints project is an open-source development framework with ready-to-use, customizable Infrastructure as Code (IaC) samples built on AWS best-practices that allows operators to configure different flavors of EKS clusters and simplify the management of Kubernetes add-ons.

By consolidating tools and best-practices for securing, scaling, monitoring, and operating infrastructure for containerized applications, the EKS Blueprints allows DevOps and SRE teams to simplify operations of infrastructure for microservices. In this session, AWS experts will walk you through the EKS Blueprints, followed by a workshop where you will get hands-on experience with Amazon EKS.

We are also excited to be joined by our partner Tigera, for a hands-on workshop on implementing Zero Trust Security for EKS workloads with Calico.
