For this meetup, we decided to partner with the Hashicorp meetup. In the cloud-native world there is a lot of overlap between Hashicorp tools and Kubernetes. Hashicorp tools can provide a lot of value on Kubernetes.
The venue is provided by Teamleader (https://www.teamleader.eu). We have the following scheduled for you.
Talk 1: Tarmak, why do we need another Kubernetes Provisioner?
Tarmak is an open-source toolkit for Kubernetes cluster lifecycle management. It is focused on best-practice cluster security, management and operation. This talk will clarify the reasoning behind creating Tarmak, the architecture and technologies used. With Tarmak we tried to not reinvent the wheel, hence we have chosen to depend on a lot of other open-source tools (Terraform, Puppet, Vault, …). I will explain how all these open-source tools are used to setup and manage a best-practice and secure Kubernetes cluster.
Mattias is a solutions engineer at Jetstack where he helps clients setup Kubernetes clusters and migrate workloads to Kubernetes.
He has a deep understanding of Kubernetes and the applications you can run on it.
Talk 2: Using Consul for service discovery on Kubernetes in a hybrid cloud solution.
Consul is a distributed service mesh to connect and configure services across any runtime platform and public or private cloud. kube-dns supports configurable private DNS zones (often called “stub domains”) which can be used in combination with consul in a hybrid cloud setup.
Jan Bosmans (external consultant at Nike) & Tim Boven (Product Owner at Nike) delivered the kubernetes setup at Nike.
Both have a good understanding of Kubernetes.
