About this event

Abstract of the talkā€¦

A typical user's journey with Crossplane starts with provisioning infrastructure using the Kubernetes API, then evolves to composing infrastructure into higher level abstractions, and culminates with building a complete platform using packages. Crossplane packages are distributed as OCI images, meaning that a platform API can easily be reproduced in any cluster, and they can declare dependencies, which specify the lower level services that support the higher level abstractions. This functionality allows for companies to distribute their product in an infrastructure provider-agnostic manner, and for infrastructure admins to build internal platforms made up of both generic and organization-specific components.
