Hi Reader,

Happy Thanksgiving. If you're in the US, I hope you had a good time with friends and family.

If you're receiving this email it's likely that you subscribed to get updates about my book or have used one of my products (e.g Knative kn CLI cheat sheet). I have exciting news to share! ☺️

My Book, How to build a serverless app platform on Kubernetes was released on Monday πŸ’ƒπŸ½


About the book

Businesses are modernising their application and adopting hybrid and multi-cloud approach to deliver services. This shift in application deployment has given rise to containerisation and Kubernetes being used to deploy, manage, and scale containerised applications.

With the adoption of Kubernetes, many IT divisions now build custom tools and platform for their internal developers to deploy and run code without thinking about servers and clusters. Wouldn't it be cool to learn how to build a platform that integrates many of the tools and technologies you use, and automate application delivery? Even if it's for your internal developers.

The book "How to build a serverless app platform on Kubernetes" will teach you how to do that.

You will learn how to:

1. Build a web app to deploy code from GitHub repository.

2. Run auto-scaleable applications with autoTLS using Kubernetes and Knative.

3. Automate the build and deploy process using Tekton.

4. Integrate the Tekton pipelines with GitHub.

5. Build GitHub Apps to automate code delivery (CI/CD).

6. Build container images using Cloud Native Buildpacks.


Even if you don't have immediate need to build an internal developer platform, these skills are good to have if you're building cloud-native applications.

Buy the book and learn about serverless, Knative, Tekton, GitHub Apps, Cloud Native Buildpacks, and more! I left the price open for you to pay what you want (not less than $10 πŸ™ˆ πŸ™πŸ½)

Here's a sneak peak into what you will build:


You can download chapter one for free.

P.S: If you can't afford the entire book and you'd like to get it for free, please let me know.


Keep Smiling 😁 Stay Safe!

Hello Reader, It's been a while! I am here with an update about my book: How to build a serverless app platform on top of Kubernetes. You haven't heard from me since you subscribed to get updates while I write the book. I have been hard at work trying to get it done as quick as possible and with great quality. However, there's been some delay because, .... life happened πŸ™ˆ. But I come with good news today. A free gift!! I will open pre-launch sales in two weeks. You will get to buy an early...
