# Cloud Native Nordics Tour
We are joining forces with Aalborg on the next event. The Aalborg group will be part of the next Cloud Native Nordics tour featuring the two talks;
* KUDO - Kubernetes Operators, the easy way by Nick Jones, D2IQ
* Building a Bank from Scratch in the Cloud on Kubernetes, Hans Kristian Flaatten, EVRY
We will arrange bus transport to the event. If you want to go in your own car, please sign-up directly at the Aalborg event: https://www.meetup.com/Cloud-Native-Aalborg/events/263745353/
If you want to join the bus tour, only sign-up for this event.
There will be a no-show policy for this event. Please respect the deadline, as we need to make reservations for the bus.
You will be banned for the next 3 Cloud Native Aarhus meet-ups.
KUDO - Kubernetes Operators, the easy way
- by Nick Jones
Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. The KUDO project introduces an easy way to build Kubernetes operators using declarative YAML. Many Operators that exist today handle initial deployment, but they don’t provide automation for tasks like binary upgrades, configuration updates, and failure recovery. Implementing a production-grade controller for a complex workload typically requires thousands of lines of code and many months of development. As a result, the quality of operators that are available today varies. The KUDO project provides a universal operator to enable automated creation of operators for Kubernetes, in most cases just using YAML.
In this talk, Nick introduces the KUDO project, and demo the creation of a Kubernetes operator using KUDO.
Building a Bank from Scratch in the Cloud on Kubernetes
- by Hans Kristian Flaatten
We have built the next generation mobile bank for Norway in the cloud from scratch! This is how we build Bulder Bank from the ground up in 10 months.
Early on it was decided that we had to be open for radical new ideas if we was to succeed. Important criterias was speed, modern and automated processes and future-proofing. In addition we wanted to make something that was cool and motivated everyone on the team to work on.
The choice landed on Google Kubernetes Engine and Google Firebase and the possibilities this gives us are literally endless! And it gives us the opportunity to move fast while having a more or less fully managed environment that is always up and running!
We have decided to model payments entirely event based and asynchronously where multiple microservices written in Go each do their part before handing over the transaction to the next service over a message queue.
