About this event

Dieses Mal werden wir zwei Talks sehen:

"Managing Stateful Services with the Operator Pattern", by Jakob Karalus

While it's easy to deploy stateless application with Kubernetes, it's harder for stateful software. Since applications often require custom functionality that Kubernetes can't provide, developers want to add more specialized patterns like automatic backups, failover or rebalancing to their Kubernetes deployments. In this talk, we will look at the Operator Pattern and other possibilities to extend the functionality of Kubernetes and how to use them to operate stateful applications.

About Jakob:

Jakob is a IT-Consultant at codecentric focusing on DevOps and Data Science. Currently, he is deeply into kubernetes but he also likes to play around with exciting and evolving technologies around orchestration, automation and Machine Learning. He holds a masters degree in Computer Science from the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich.

"Using Micro-Operators to Facilitate Config Management (and other Ops Tasks)", by Felix Obenauer

Providing configuration at runtime to the container is a common pattern in microservice architectures. Making sure that an application reacts properly to a changed configuration is a resulting operations task that needs automation. Configservers, for example, provide this functionality, but they also introduce lots of additional operational complexity.

This talk looks at how to solve this problem with a simple application that interacts with the Kubernetes API. The talk will also describe the underlying pattern and points
to similar problems that can be solved with Micro Operators.

About Felix:

As a software developer and devops engineer at QAware Felix works with Kubernetes und related technologies on a daily basis. Currently he is the go-to guy for container technologies and devops in a multi-team project with a national telco.
