About this event

Let’s kick off the Brussels Kubernetes Meetup with some awesome talks from experts in the field.

We will have pizza sponsored by CoScale and drinks sponsored by Red Hat!

As we have limited space, if you don't manage to be at the meetup, please open up your place to somebody on the waiting list.


Talk 1: “How to use your Kubernetes remote control, or: kubectl in action” (Michael Hausenblas, Developer Advocate at Red Hat, OpenShift team)

Kubernetes comes with kubectl, a CLI that allows you to interact with
your cluster, supporting operations from config to managing workloads
to administrative tasks. In this talk you'll learn everything you need
to know getting the most out of kubectl and beyond.

Talk 2: “Introduction to Kubernetes Networking” (Bryan Boreham, Director of Engineering at Weaveworks, maintainer of CNI and Weave Net)

Kubernetes has two simple but powerful network concepts: every Pod is connected to the same network, and Services let you talk to a Pod by name. Bryan will take you through how these concepts are implemented - Pod Networks via the Container Network Interface (CNI), Service Discovery via kube-dns and Service virtual IPs, then on to how Services are exposed to the rest of the world.

Talk 3: "Infrastructure components for Kubernetes deployments" (Sergiusz Urbaniak, Senior Software Engineer at Gesundheitscloud, ex-CoreOS installer team)

There is a lot of buzz and projects around Kubernetes installation and deployment stories. Many installer options exist, starting from DIY solutions like "Kubernetes the hard way" up to ready-to-use cloud provided solutions like AWS EKS and Azure AKS.

This talk tries to demystify the concepts behind a Kubernetes deployment. It outlines the necessary building blocks for networking, storage and compute for a cloud-based Kubernetes installation and provides a concrete example using Terraform.
