Speaker: Dan Garfield

You've got a Kubernetes cluster but what's next? How do you configure your application for Kubernetes, and deploy it? What about automation? In this talk Dan Garfield will give an intro to Kubernetes in production and share how to get your first application figured out and running on Kubernetes, complete with deployment automation. 


Full-stack engineer, kubernaut, and raspberry pi enthusiast. He's contributed to a number of open source projects and has beat Super Mario Bros 3 without a warp whistle. He works at Codefresh, a container delivery platform designed around containers and Kubernetes. Ask him about his robotic chicken coop.

7:30 - 8:00- 2nd talk - Argo by Applatix

Speaker: Ed Lee

Containers are fast becoming the preferred way to distribute and run applications. Containers provide better portability, isolation, efficiency and agility compared with VMs and traditional methods of packaging software.  We will present the case for container-native workflows, which preserves and extends the benefits of containers to workflows as well.  It can be any workflow – CI/CD pipeline or data workflow. Portability, in particular, will allow workflows to be created and run reliably and securely on any Kubernetes cluster anywhere in the world and result in greater choice, sharing and accessibility for users. What would the world be like if every user had access to a Google-class computing power at their fingertips and share their favorite workflows to build and run distributed applications? 

In this talk Ed will walk through the concept and portability of container native workflows and demonstrate different workflows with Argo, an open-source container-native workflow engine for Kubernetes.


Ed is a co-founder at Applatix, a startup working on helping users run containerized workloads in the public cloud. Ed received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, where he was a member of the Berkeley RAID team. He joined Digital’s Systems Research Center where he worked on distributed systems (Petal & Frangipani). More recently, he has been a member of the engineering teams at Data Domain and Tintri working on projects such as quality of service, full-stack monitoring, data protection and deduplication.
