Need a Kubernetes cluster for a short amount of time, but always forget to destroy them? Worry no more, as in this session we'll show you how to create a self-destructing Kubernetes Cluster.

During this talk, we'll showcase a number of technology principles: Infrastructure as Code, CI/CD, identity in the cloud and scheduling jobs on Kubernetes. We'll use Terraform, GitHub Actions and Azure Kubernetes as demo material, but the concepts of this talk translate to any technology platform.

By attending this talk you'll get a practical understanding of Infrastructure as Code, CI/CD, identity in the cloud and scheduling jobs on Kubernetes.
