GoDoc Widget CII Best Practices

Kubernetes is an open source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts. It provides basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications.

Kubernetes builds upon a decade and a half of experience at Google running production workloads at scale using a system called Borg, combined with best-of-breed ideas and practices from the community.

Kubernetes is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). If your company wants to help shape the evolution of technologies that are container-packaged, dynamically scheduled, and microservices-oriented, consider joining the CNCF. For details about who's involved and how Kubernetes plays a role, read the CNCF announcement.

To start using Kubernetes

See our documentation on

Try our interactive tutorial.

Take a free course on Scalable Microservices with Kubernetes.

To start developing Kubernetes

The community repository hosts all information about building Kubernetes from source, how to contribute code and documentation, who to contact about what, etc.

If you want to build Kubernetes right away there are two options:

You have a working Go environment.
mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/
cd $GOPATH/src/
git clone
cd kubernetes
You have a working Docker environment.
git clone
cd kubernetes
make quick-release

For the full story, head over to the developer's documentation.


If you need support, start with the troubleshooting guide, and work your way through the process that we've outlined.

That said, if you have questions, reach out to us one way or another.
