"Cloud-native Infrastructure as (real) Code"

Pulumi ( offers an open source platform to create/manage and deploy your infrastructure in realy programming languages like JavaScript/TypeScript, Go and Python. As Cloud platforms the major 3 cloud providers are supported and additionally you can also use Pulumi with OpenStack and Kubernetes to deploy your applications in the cloud.
In this talk we will take a look how Pulumi is different to traditional solutions like Terraform or the Cloud Provider specific solutions (e.g. CloudFormation). The main focus will be on deploying your services on top of Kubernetes. The talk will contain a little theory part about Pulumi, the rest of the talk is more focused on demos and practical parts. One focus of the talk is the difference of Pulumi to kubectl and helm (or to be precise how they complement each other.
As a takeaway of this talk you should understand the basics of Pulumi and know what are the differences to the traditional deployment tools.

"Making Helm 2 Secure and Scalable with Rimas Mocevicius"

Rimas will talk about some of the core security issues related to a new component in Helm 2. In Helm 2, a server-side component "Tiller" was added. Tiller is an in-cluster server that interacts with the Helm client, and interfaces with the Kubernetes API server.
There are core security issues related to Tiller in Helm 2. Hence, in the recent Helm Summit, the community decided to vote for a Tiller-less Helm in v3. The question to ask is how to make Helm 2 more secure given that v3 is planned for some time next year.
Join Rimas Mocevicius, Co-Founder of Helm, to learn how you can make Helm 2 more secure and scalable.

About Rimas:
Rimas Mocevicius is big Open Source supporter. He Co-founded Helm and wrote CoreOS Essentials book. Rimas is working at JFrog as a Senior Developer.
