In this introductory chapter, we set the scene for the rest of the book by explaining a
few of the core Kubernetes concepts used for designing and implementing container-based cloud-native applications. Understanding these new abstractions, and the
related principles and patterns from this book, are key to building distributed appli‐
cations made automatable by cloud-native platforms.
This chapter is not a prerequisite for understanding the patterns described later.
Readers familiar with Kubernetes concepts can skip it and jump straight into the pat‐
tern category of interest.
