About this event

July Meetup hosted and sponsored by Coverwallet:


18:45 Nick Jones: KUDO - Kubernetes Operators, the easy way (in English).

Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. The Kudo project introduces an easy way to build Kubernetes operators using declarative YAML. Many Operators that exist today handle initial deployment, but they don’t provide automation for tasks like binary upgrades, configuration updates, and failure recovery. Implementing a production-grade controller for a complex workload typically requires thousands of lines of code and many months of development. As a result, the quality of operators that are available today varies. The Kudo project provides a universal operator to enable automated creation of operators for Kubernetes, in most cases just using YAML. In this talk, I’ll introduce the Kudo project, and demo the creation of a Kubernetes operator using Kudo.

Nick is an experienced I.T {sysadmin, engineer, architect} with a career spanning nearly two decades across a wide variety of industries and sectors. Passionate about new technologies and methodologies, especially those in relation to Open Source, virtualization, orchestration, automation, and all forms of cloud computing. Simultaneously romantic about the old with a penchant for decrepit Sun and SGI kit. Likes Emacs and vi.

19:15 Ramiro Berrelleza: Next Generation Dev Tools for Kubernetes (in English).

Kubernetes has made it very easy to deploy applications to the cloud at a higher scale than ever. Projects like Knative, Istio, Envoy and Open Policy Agents enable us to run applications at a very high scale, with incredibly complex network and access rules. But at the same time, they make it really hard to develop and test locally. This pain goes away if we develop our cloud-native applications directly int the cluster.
In this talk, Ramiro will explain the concept of cloud-native development, the benefits and challenges of this approach, the different tools available for this and how we implement it at @Okteto.

Ramiro Berrelleza is the co-founder and CEO of Okteto. He has spent the last 10 years of his career building cloud services and developer tools. Previously, Ramiro was an Architect at Atlassian and a Software Engineer at Microsoft Azure.
