Talk: Hassle-free, scalable Machine Learning with Kubeflow

Kubeflow uses Kubernetes strengths to build a toolkit for data scientists where they can create, train and publish the models in a hassle-free and scalable way. The goal is to run machine learning workflow without a need to think about the infrastructure. In this talk, Barbara will discuss the capabilities of Kubeflow from the data scientist perspective. The presentation will introduce how you can use the platform to build the models and deploy it adjusting the computation environment
Barbara is a Strategic Cloud Engineer at Google with strong software development background.

Talk: Running Kubernetes without Docker using CRI

The Kubernetes eco-system is evolving with new projects designed directly around Kubernetes. In this talk, Ben will introduce how to run Kubernetes with CRI (Container Runtime Interface) allowing you to use ContainerD, CRI-O and other container runtimes.

Before containers can launch, they need to be built. Ben will look at how other Container Builders are evolving and the benefits they bring.

In the end, attendees will see the value of Kubernetes introducing a Container Runtime Interface and open build systems. Will this lead to us not having a container runtime at all?
Ben is the founder of Katacoda (, an interactive learning and training platform for software engineers. Katacoda specialises in enabling developers to understand Cloud-Native technologies including Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift. Ben has been working with these technologies, helping both train teams and delivering projects. Ben tweets at @Ben_Hall while blogging at
