Trending Tech Tuesday: Kubernetes

August 7, 2018 by Aaron Olanie

This is the second post of a weekly series where I will be sharing tech skills that are trending in the Emsi job posting data. In case you missed it, here is the first. Emsi is a labor market analytics firm that continuously searches millions of job postings across the web.

I’ve identified trending skills in our job posting data, and I wanted to share. I’ve identified trending skills in our job posting data, and this week we’re looking at Kubernetes.  Enjoy.

12-month growth rate in unique postings for Kubernetes: 229%

What is Kubernetes? Here is a great article explaining what Kubernetes is. For those that don’t want to click the link:

“Kubernetes… is an open source platform that automates Linux container operations. It eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications. In other words, you can cluster together groups of hosts running Linux containers, and Kubernetes helps you easily and efficiently manage those clusters. These clusters can span hosts across public, private, or hybrid clouds.”
