About this event

Hey there!

We're really excited to organize the last Cloud Native meetup of 2018 with Jérôme Petazzoni and close this year with interesting subjects.

- The first talk with Edward Wilde who is a core contributor to the OpenFaaS about Serverless.

- The come back of Jérôme, which will give us two short talks, tips of an easy way how to prepare for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator exam from the CNCF and his feedback about KubCon Seattle.

We'd like to thank our sponsor Renault Digital

Abstract :

Trip notes from KubeCon

The exact content of this talk will be a surprise, since KubeCon hasn't happened yet as we write these lines! But this is what Jérôme has to say on the topic: “I spent 2 hours on the KubeCon schedule, and I saw more than 40 interesting talks. I can't attend all of them without cloning myself, but I promise to bring back some interesting, exciting, and relevant bits of information!”

S'il vous plaît, dessine-moi un cluster

In this lightning talk, we will show how to set up a simplified, artisanal, hand-crafted, small-batch, Kubernetes cluster, without using external tools. It will definitely not be production-ready or secure or compliant, but it will be a great way to understand how Kubernetes works, or to prepare for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator exam from the CNCF, for instance.

This title is a reference to the famous line “Will you please draw me a sheep?" from Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince.

Bio :

Jérôme Petazzoni was part of the team that built, scaled, and operated the dotCloud PAAS, before it became Docker. He worked seven years at the famous container company, wearing various hats. When he's not busy with computers, he collects musical instruments. He can arguably play the theme of Zelda on a dozen of them.

Serverless: when functions and GitOps collide

This talk introduces OpenFaaS, an open source platform for serverless functions. We begin by installing, running the platform and invoking a machine learning function within 60 second (ish). Next we step up and look at the high level platform architecture and key pillars of OpenFaaS: developer first, operator friendly and community focused. We close by looking at a multiuser platform built on top OpenFaas.

The objective of this talk is to introduce you to OpenFaaS the serverless platform and OpenFaaS cloud the multi-user environment for practicing git ops with functions.

Edward Wilde is a core contributor to the OpenFaaS project and platform architect at Form3

Hope to see you there :)
