Abstract: In this paper we discuss our experience in teaching the Robotic Applications Programming course at ZHAW combining the use of a Kubernetes (k8s) cluster and real, heterogeneous, robotic hardware. We discuss the main advantages of our solutions in terms of seamless "simulation to real'' experience for students and the main shortcomings we encountered with networking and sharing GPUs to support deep learning workloads. We describe the current and foreseen alternatives to avoid these drawbacks in future course editions and propose a more cloud-native approach to deploying multiple robotics applications on a k8s cluster.
