Down in Monterrey, Mexico, I did a talk for Headspring Talks entitled "Getting Started with Docker and Kubernetes". The goal was to help people who are starting to learn these incredibly powerful technologies a good kick-off point. When I was learning about these things, I knew that there were certain concepts that helped me internalize the way that Docker and Kubernetes work. I tend to not memorize facts or details very well. Instead, I focus on the core concepts of how something works, then derive back to detailed knowledge from there. I make an educated guess at how something should work, and that helps me solve problems more effectively.
