Talk #1: “How to Be Good Kubernetes Citizen” by Maciek Olesinski (talk in Polish)

In recent years, Kubernetes has been growing in popularity. The number of applications deployed on Kubernetes is increasing drastically. But what can be done to be sure that our services are healthy and working as expected? How can we be sure that we are not overwhelming K8s with faulty deployment? How can we diagnose failing container? What are the best practices? We will answer these and other questions during this talk.

Talk #2: “Understanding (finally!) Role-based Access Control in Kubernetes” by Javier J. Salmeron

One of the major Kubernetes achievements, was enabling Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) policies. This allowed to finally proper administer a Kubernetes cluster in production environments. While everyone welcomed this feature with excitement, it also created innumerable frustrated users. This talk will explain the how to properly work with Users, Roles, Rolebindings and ServiceAccounts. We will also show the consequences of having incorrect RBAC rules set up in the case of Helm’s Tiller.
