About this event

Save the date for an evening of inspiring talks and discussions to warm up for KubeCon/CloudNativeCon! We are planning a few short talks, some mingling time and a panel discussion.


17.30 Welcome

17.40 Kubernetes Registry: what it is and why it's important, by Craig Peters, Director of Product, Partnerships at Jfrog

To run on Kubernetes your apps are packaged in Docker containers. How do you answer questions about the containers you're deploying to Kubernetes? Those containers necessarily contain lots of other packages created by many different teams within and outside your organization. You need to know what is in them, if they are of the quality you demand, and if they are secure. You can do this while giving your developers the data they need to go fast with confidence. How? The Kubernetes Registry.

17.55 Automating Helm deployments to Kubernetes with Helmsman, by Sami Alajrami, PhD and Consultant at Praqma

Helmsman enables you to automate the lifecycle management of Helm releases in your cluster using a declarative syntax. The declarative syntax describes how to connect to your cluster and what is the desired state of your charts. Helmsman then compares your desired state with the actual state in the cluster and decides whether to install/upgrade/delete/roll back/move your releases for you. Hence, allowing you to maintain your Helm releases from code.


18.40 Serverless Containers with Azure Container Instances, by Justin Luk, Program Manager at Microsoft

Learn about how containers are entering the cloud as a compute primitive. We’ll cover how Azure Container Instances (ACI) provide a rapid, simple way to deploy containers to the cloud. We will discuss scenarios such as how ACI enables simple scenarios such as dev/test in the cloud and more complex ones such as burst scaling in Kubernetes through the open-source virtual-kubelet project. Bring questions, comments, and thoughts as we discuss the future of cloud-native computing!

18.55 Machine API - An easier way to manage nodes in Kubernetes, by Guus van Weelden, Loodse Developer.

Imagine a world in which a Kubernetes control plane could govern and control node infrastructure in Kubernetes. In this talk, Guus will take the user on an adventurous journey through the Kubernetes API and into the infrastructure layer of the stack. Guus will introduce the idea of Machine API, talk about the patterns behind declarative nodes, and look at the role of the cloud provider within these patterns. The participants will learn how the project integrates cleanly and effortlessly with the Kubernetes API and works out of the box with kubectl. Also, Guus will present the work of the official Cluster API effort and the concept of bring-your-own-node-controller.
