Both talks will be followed by 5 minute Q&A and a 5 minute break.



“Building reliability into our cloud applications”, Margarita Manterola

Abstract: When trying to iterate quickly on our code, reliability tends to be overlooked and given lower priority than getting the latest features out. Until a large incident comes and knocks our applications out of service.

This talk will give a quick introduction to the Site Reliability principles, and look into how they can be applied to cloud applications, regardless of the size of the organization.

“Write a Kubernetes Operator in Go”, Ellen Körbes

Abstract: Kubernetes monitors and maintains state for many aspects of your cluster, but what about those out-of-the-box ideas no one’s thought of yet that are essential to the success of your program? Enter Kubernetes Operators: state-management machines for self-defined resources. See Kubernetes Operators in action as Ellen Körbes live-codes one in Go—showing you their practical application and everything you need to write your own.
