Talk #1 - "On the ING Azure cloud container platform" by Sudesh Jethoe
Sudesh will talk about the container platform which he and his team are building in the Azure public cloud and touch on the following subjects:
* Composable Infrastructure, how to utilize composability features in software defined infrastructure and what are its benefits
* Scalable Platforms, although starting a Kubernetes/AKS cluster in Azure is easy, how to keep it under control?
* Observability, investigation and choices with regards to integrating observability features into the platform
* (Demo)

Talk #2 - "From v1alpha1 to v1 - how an operator turns 1.0" by James Munnelly
Kubernetes operators have been written for databases, stateful services, business applications and even core Kubernetes components.
As this new era of operational software evolves, it's essential that common standards are followed in order for the community to thrive and projects to inter-operate with one another.

The cert-manager project, an x509 certificate management tool for Kubernetes, is moving to 1.0. This step is significant, not only because of the work it represents, but the decisions and commitments we have to make in order to be a 'responsible citizen' in the ecosystem.

By the end of this talk, you should understand:

* What stable means in Kubernetes
* What's required of any CRD-configured service to be 'ready for consumption'
* How cert-manager implemented these changes 'in-flight'
* What sort of changes we've had to make in cert-manager
* What's next for our project
