Scheduling Your Kubernetes Pods With Elixir


Kelsey Hightower gave a really interesting talk at ContainerSched about how to create your own scheduler using the Kubernetes HTTP API. The talk was awesome. It’s incredible to see what kind of things you can do with a base system as good as Kubernetes.
