About this event

Hello Chicago Kubernauts!

We're very excited to announce our June event!

SPONSORED: Deploy & manage a Kubernetes + Istio cluster at AWS, GCE, GKE, DigitalOcean or Azure today! (https://stackpoint.io/clusters/new?solution=istio&utm_source=meetup&utm_medium=event_page&utm_campaign=chicago_k8s)

Whilst Kelsey Hightower likes to call kubectl "the new SSH" as he makes light of procedural problem-solving skills applied to Kubernetes' decidedly declarative world -- real-world cluster operations still requires low-level access beneath the almighty kubelet. Abe Ingersoll will review multi-tenant cluster patterns that have been popular to date, explore what's coming with kubectl debug, take a peek at next-gen tech such as gVisor, and demo what solutions exist today for highly-regulated or air-gapped environments.

Also this month, let's dig into storage some more. As you know, running database services in containerized environments such as Kubernetes is a complex task. Mongo's Jason Mimick will review review best practices and recommendations for running MongoDB clusters in k8s and containerized environments in general and see, hands-on, a real-live demonstration of everything in action.

Hope to see you there!

8:15 - 8:45 - Social / Wrap-up

Jason Mimick is a Technical Director at MongoDB working with our many technology partners. His days are typically spent writing code, working with companies building complex enterprise applications running on MongoDB, creating integrations for MongoDB to commercial and open source platforms, and supporting MongoDB customers using these solutions.

Abe helped build and rebuild (and rebuild again) systems of pristine virtue and glorious complexity that have long since been forgotten or destroyed by entropy. Today he finds himself orchestrating solutions of unimaginable scale for Gravitational's air-gapped Kubernetes and enterprise Teleport SSH customers; all while his passion (and waning technical skill) lies in constantly refreshing Hacker News.
