Welcome from the organizers

Istio In Production
- by Hans Duedal, Unity
War-stories from an eventually successful Istio production rollout, for machine learning workloads in the cloud.
We'll start by examining managed Istio, in particular GKEs "built-in" Istio, then deep dive on the traditional helm-deployed Istio. We'll see how added istio features like Kiali provides visibility into the smart plumbing of your services, and how we can use it, and other tools, to debug when things doesn't work (like you expected). We'll conclude with reflecting on how to best add a service mesh to your stack.

Prometheus 101 - How to get started"
- by Rasmus Steiniche, CEO at neurospace
Prometheus is one of the most awesome monitoring tool and is becoming the standard in the cloud native space.
This talk will teach you basic concepts of prometheus and show you how to get started.
It will be possible to follow along on your laptop: https://github.com/steiniche/prometheus

GitOps - Operations by Pull Request
- by Kasper Nissen, Site Reliability Engineer at Lunar
The term "GitOps" term was originally coined by Weaveworks as a way to do operations by pull requests, and apply many of the same ideas behind reconciliation in kubernetes clusters to applications and clusters. This way of operating clusters enforces declarative infrastructure and serves as a source of truth for your systems. Always having the source of truth in git provides many advantages, two of them being always having the latest state to recover from in case of a cluster disaster, and secondly, complete audibility of what is going on in the cluster. But, how do I get started? In this presentation Kasper will cover GitOps as a term, and share his experiences implementing GitOps at Lunar as well as GitOps for Cloud Native Nordics.
