About this event

The doors open at 18:00.

This time we host Tomas Papez and Jan “Juzna” Doleček from Kiwi https://kiwi.com/, who will be speaking about their migration to GCP and experiences with running Kubernetes cluster with 100s of nodes and serverless with Knative and Cloud Run, respectively.

Tom's summary about his talk:

Migration of Kiwi.com to GCP and lessons learned

This talk will be not only technical and I will touch topics like decision making, trainings, setting the path and walking on it and how many changes we did on the way and where are we now. I will also talk about our tech stack, how we enhanced developers experience, our success/fuckups in GKE and what we learned from running hundreds of nodes on single GKE cluster.

Jan’s summary about his talk:

New Serverless option in Google - Cloud Run

Cloud Run and Knative is a new serverless platform which you can use as a fully managed solution by Google, or you can run it on top of an existing Kubernetes cluster anywhere. This will be an overview of the platform and why you should or shouldn't use it.
