October Online Meetup: Migrating from Rancher 1.6 to Rancher 2.0

In our October Online Meetup, we will dive into how to transition various aspects of Rancher 1.6 applications to Rancher 2.0. During the Meetup, Rancher engineers Will Chan and Prachi Damle will discuss and demo:

  • Key terminology differences and parallels between Rancher 1.6 and 2.0.
  • How to implement elements like Port Mapping, HealthCheck, Service discovery, Scheduling and Load Balancing the 2.0 way.
  • Demo a transformation of Cattle Compose files of a Rancher 1.6 application to Kubernetes YAML specs.
