TALK #1:

"Automating K3S" by Nicklas Frahm, Cloud architect at Vestas


k3se - k3s is a powerful tool to bring up lightweight Kubernetes clusters, but even with tools like Ansible and k3sup bringing up clusters requires quite some scripting. This is why built k3se a tool that can bring up an HA Kubernetes cluster in 60s via a single command. It also comes with a GitHub Action, so you can fully automate the deployment. In this talk I will also go a little bit into how you can go from prototype to product on GitHub via automatic, semantic releases.


Nicklas Frahm is an open-source enthusiast and recently joined Vestas to build their new Kubernetes Platform. In my spare time I build homelabs (plural!) and hack network gear, primarily to build more clusters.

TALK #2:

"Beyond GitOps: thinking in dynamic and static change" by Mike Long, Co-Founder and CEO at www.Kosli.cin


Git has been a central part of the devops story. Our continuous integration systems run builds, produce artifacts, execute tests, and ultimately deploy systems defined as code in our git repositories. More recently, GitOps has extended the reach of git towards a better understanding of our runtime environments. But does that come with hidden challenges?

Discover the future state of GitOps - extended to address challenges every developer faces when things go wrong: bad merges, faulty PRs, manual changes - and even when they go right: is my code actually running in that environment?
