We at Canonical have been super busy fine tuning your experience with Kubernetes, Docker, and LXD on Ubuntu!
Amazingly, you're merely two commands away from standing up a fully functional, minimal Kubernetes cluster on any Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system...
$ sudo snap install --classic conjure-up $ conjure-up kubernetes-core
Or, if you're feeling more enterprisey and want the full experience, try:
$ conjure-up canonical-kubernetes
I hope to meet some of you at ContainerWorld in Santa Clara next week. Marco Ceppi and I are running a Kubernetes installfest workshop on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, from 3pm - 4:30pm. I can guarantee that every single person who attends will succeed in deploying their own Kubernetes cluster to a public cloud (AWS, Azure, or Google), or to their Ubuntu laptop or VM.
Also, I'm giving a talk entitled, "Using the Right Container Technology for the Job", on Wednesday, February 22, 2017 from 1:30pm - 2:10pm.
Finally, I invite you to check out this 30-minute podcast with David Daly, from DevOpsChat, where we talked quite a bit about Containers and Kubernetes and the experience we're working on in Ubuntu...
