From the Publisher

Why We Wrote This Book

We, the authors, are maintainers of Helm, so we set out to write a book to help those who have questions about it. We didn’t just want to supply the technical details that are often found in the documentation; we wanted to provide context and insight into what Helm does and why.

Who Should Read This Book

There are a few situations where you will find this book useful. If you’re new to Kubernetes or want to learn how to install off-the-shelf applications, this book will help you learn how to do that with Helm. It is much easier and faster to install applications through Helm than it is to learn how to do so by hand with Kubernetes. If you work for a company (or a project) that wants to distribute your applications to Kubernetes users in an easy-to-consume manner, this book will teach you how to do that with Helm. Being able to quickly install your application makes getting started easier, and Helm can help you with that.

This book is also for DevOps professionals who want to learn to use Kubernetes package management as part of their DevOps toolchains. Helm provides powerful and advanced features that can be used as building blocks for other automation. These have been used to deploy large and complex applications onto Kubernetes, and this book will teach you how to leverage those features.
