Title: Journey to Cloud Native/Micro-services
Speaker: Kurt Roekle

7:00-7:10: Break
7:10-7:40: Second Speaker
Title: I Deploy During the Day and You Can Too
Speaker: Branden Timm
Summary: The ability to upgrade a live application under load without your users ever noticing is one of the most compelling business cases for adopting the Cloud Native platform. However, there is more to it than simply updating the image version in your Kubernetes Deployment spec and letting the Deployment Controller do it's thing.

In this talk we will discuss the pitfalls you may encounter during a rolling deploy to a modern microservice application, and offer solutions that any company can adopt or adapt using entirely Cloud Native tooling.
