Create DJ App

This workshop has been deprecated and archived. The new Amazon EKS Workshop is now available at

Let’s create the DJ App!

dj app 1

The application repo has all of the configuration YAML required to deploy the DJ App into its own prod namespace on your Kubernetes cluster.

kubectl apply -f 1_base_application/base_app.yaml

This will create the prod namespace as well as the Deployments and Services for the application. The output should be similar to:

namespace/prod created
deployment.apps/dj created
deployment.apps/metal-v1 created
deployment.apps/jazz-v1 created
service/dj created
service/metal-v1 created
service/jazz-v1 created

You can now verify that the objects were all created successfully and the application is up and running.

kubectl -n prod get all

Once you’ve verified everything is looking good in the prod namespace, you’re ready to test out this initial version of the DJ App.
