What’s new in the Kubernetes Gateway API

Abdel Sghiouar, Senior Cloud Developer Advocate at Google and Host of the Kubernetes Podcast

The Gateway API was Introduced to Kubernetes in 2019. The project is making a sturdy progress toward becoming the single expressive API for Inbound traffic that is portable, extensible and role-oriented. With over 20 Implementations and multiple objects making it to GA recently. This session is about exploring what’s happening in the project. What is the state of the API and the various implementations? We will also cover the GAMMA initiative which aims at using the Gateway API as a standard way to describe East-West traffic (AKA mesh traffic).

Monitoring Magic: Mixing Up Your Dashboards with Jsonnet

 Thor Lange, Platform Development Specialist @ Netic

A lot of dashboards exists for download and installation into Grafana. But what if you need to customize more than just the dashboard data-source? What if we want to treat dashboards as code? The talk is going to introduce Jsonnet and the concept of Grafana mixins for reusable and customizable Grafana dashboards as code.
