When you hear words such as Kubernetes or OpenShift you immediately start thinking
about long running processes you can easily scale at will. However, Kubernetes includes a lesser known feature which allows you to run pretty much anything from simple tasks up to highly-complicated ones.

During this presentation, the author of the Job resource in Kubernetes will guide you through several techniques for performing anything ranging from simple Pi calculations to rendering a movie. No matter if you're a data scientist running large scale calculations across several data centers or a hobby programmer running simple day-to-day tasks, this presentation is to teach you how to efficiently use Kubernetes Jobs on their own or as the building blocks of something

This presentation will feature a number of live demos to help illustrate the various ways that you can put Jobs to work. Don’t miss out on learning about one of the coolest features of Kubernetes!
