Talk #1

A container has fallen into the river of LEGO City - Start the rescue helicopter

This is a tale about a passion project that hit overwhelming success internally at LEGO, it was promoted as the future compute platform of all of LEGO and was destined for greatness!

Then it hit numerous unexpected road-bumps and the once-great an innovative machinery rusted away, destabilising the platform over time.

We will discuss the challenges of building a platform in the LEGO Group, some war-stories about issues that popped up while the platform was rusting away and finally we will show you the key changes we made to bring the platform stability back in a short amount of time.

Talk #2

How Kubernetes make windows better windows

Windows powered by Kubernetes. What? How and Why? Wait, those are real windows! Yes, we run our industry IoT platform on Kubernetes, both on premises and in the cloud, to help us better produce roof windows.

It’s never easy to work with production machineries. All applications linked to production lines are expected to have 100% uptime when the production is on, and all systems integrated with production sites have to be secured including all their dependencies. In this talk, we will share our learnings on how we overcame the traditional ways of working, and securely implemented an open source based robust platform to serve an 80-year-old manufacturing organization. The set up has enabled us to fully automate the machine-to-machine communication, and explored numerous possibilities without huge license cost; we don’t have vendor lockin, and most importantly, consolidated data from all factories across the world, achieved connectivity between factories and cloud for the first time in VELUX history.
