First Steps into K8s

I am now need to get a better understanding of Kubernetes.
For the last few years I have been working with Docker, sometimes deployed to ecs, and before that the very simple Heroku setup.

I have just quickly skimmed through Kubernetes: Up and Running.

So far: minikube is a small one-node Kubernetes setup that can be deployed to a developers machine.

kubectl is the command line tool used to start/stop/scale things.

k8s has its own dns server and a host of self-hosted services. I am also aware that docker is involved.
There is also the important concepts of pods, daemonSets and tags.

The next item to read up on is Helm This seems to be an improved tool for deploying things to K8s.
