From Kubernetes to Kubeflow – May 12, 2022

Last week we hosted the May 2022 “From Kubernetes to Kubeflow” Workshop. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the workshop and preview what’s next. Ok, let’s dig in.


First, thanks for voting for your favorite charity!

With the unprecedented circumstances facing our global community, Arrikto is looking for even more ways to contribute. With this in mind, we thought that in lieu of swag we could give workshop attendees the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity and help guide our monthly donation to charitable causes. The charity that won this workshop’s voting was the Fellowship Housing. The mission of Fellowship Housing is to empower single moms to build a new legacy. They do this through a two-year transitional housing program that focuses on accountability and a path to independence. We are pleased to be making a donation of $100 to them on behalf of the workshop attendees. Again, thanks to all of you who attended and voted!

Q&A from the workshop


Below is a summary of some of the questions that popped into the Q&A box during the course. [Edited for readability and brevity.]


How can I install Kubeflow on a local machine?

While this is possible using vagrant it is not necessary – you can get a free 14 day Kubeflow Deployment with a click of a button at – no need to manage your own resources or struggle with installation!


How can I show my Kubeflow Knowledge to my managers? 

Take courses in Arrikto Academy, earn certificates and then your MLOps for Kubeflow badge and post on LinkedIn!
