A Kubernetes and Distributed Systems Reading List

Posted on Jul 6, 2019

So, why this post? Well…

I'm (almost) done with my exams, so I'll finally have much more free time. What are some technical books you would recommend to me? 📚 I'm interested in Kubernetes, containers, distributed systems, security (although I'm a noob here), and more.

For those of you who don’t know Marko, he is a former GSoC student at the CNCF working on Kubernetes, and is a contributor to Kubernetes Cluster API, so I’m just going to take the idea that Marko’s a n00b with a pinch of salt the size of handfuls.

Anyway, it’s a common enough request that it’s probably worth documenting my 2p here. What follows is mostly things and authors that have interested me of. Other opinions are also available.


On Kubernetes

On distributed systems

On organizational practice


On Cluster Orchestration

Distributed Systems


System Architecture
