18:00 - 18:45
Template-free Kubernetes configurations with Kustomize (Petr Malina)
We've all been there. Debugging indentation errors, manually creating Secrets, and deleting Pods just to refresh their ConfigMaps. Because of that, the YAML tooling has grown more complex but also more error-prone. Kustomize takes a step back from templating and introduces a new, declarative way of patching Kubernetes configurations. I am gonna talk about how it can be useful during deployments and make your configurations transparent and easy to debug.
18:50 - 19:10
Lightning Talk: Introduction to DAPR, runtime for building distributed applications (Štěpán Vraný)
When you are starting with distributed architecture, you can simply get the impression that everything is just a hot mess. And such an impression is not completely wrong. Hence it's a good idea to put in place some framework that helps you to overcome all (or at least some of them) the pitfalls. I'm gonna show you how to start with DAPR and microservices in less than 15 minutes.
19:15 - 20:00
Site Reliability Engineering at Condé Nast and ASG Graceful Instance Termination (Jennifer Strejevitch)
How SRE is being shaped at Condé Nast and its major role in improvements in Observability and Reliability in its Platform. Learn about a real life production issue investigation by the SRE team, how our observability tooling helped us pin down the root cause and how we implemented an open source Auto Scaling Group lifecycle manager on our Kubernetes platform to mitigate the problem. A walkthrough of a solution for one of our day to day production problems.
20:00 - 21:00
Networking and drinks
