Today's stream shows you how to get started with using Azure Kubernetes Service. I install a microservices application and explain to you the different features within AKS and how to deploy, scale and monitor your application.

During my initial installation of the application, one of my microservices did not come up. You'll work with me on using kubectl to troubleshoot a failing service.

Today's stream came with a ton of fun music by bands like Mr. Bungle and Sepultura. I create a little CHAOS AD and have you join me for the journey.

Thanks much to the Queen of Chaos, Ana Margarita Medina from Gremlin for inspiring me with the amazing workshop her and the team at Gremlin have put together around chaos engineering game days. We've teamed up before on doing a lot of the things I go over in this stream. Thanks always for helping everyone learn more about their infra!
