🙏 Big thanks to Dejardins for hosting us.

Speaker 1: Alex Gervais from Datawire
Talk Title: Build Your Own Serverless With Knative
Serverless and FaaS platforms were synonyms of cloud vendor lock-in. Google Cloud Run's use of Knative makes it a portable solution built on top of Kubernetes. In this talk, we'll recap the basic guidelines, use cases, and benefits of a Serverless architecture and explore the different ways Knative can be leveraged to support your growing ecosystem of functions. Getting up and started, you will learn to take advantage of containers and the Ambassador API Gateway to serve event-driven application workloads and save costs using your existing Kubernetes resources.

Speaker 2: Michael Tanenbaum from D2IQ
Talk title: Building Operators with Kudo
Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. The Kudo project introduces an easy way to build Kubernetes operators using declarative YAML. Many Operators that exist today handle initial deployment, but they don’t provide automation for tasks like binary upgrades, configuration updates, and failure recovery. Implementing a production-grade controller for a complex workload typically requires thousands of lines of code and many months of development. As a result, the quality of operators that are available today varies. The Kudo project provides a universal operator to enable automated creation of operators for Kubernetes, in most cases just using YAML. In this talk, I’ll introduce the Kudo project, and demo the creation of a Kubernetes operator using Kudo.
