Talk Asbtract:

At this stage CNCF has over 1300 projects with so many already graduated, it will be really tempting for any developers to pick a few of these and try these in their work environment. Although these are excellent projects in their targetted use cases where these get implemented might change the actual afford required to really make it live. We'll take a look at a sample application using a few of these graduated projects and effort required to implement in a greenfield startup scenario vs implementing the same in an enterprise scenario.
