About this event

Talk: Streams Must Flow, Deploying fault-tolerant stream processing applications to Kubernetes
Speaker: Viktor Gamov

All things change constantly, and we need to get on board with streams! Kafka Streams, Apache Kafka’s stream processing library, allows developers to build sophisticated stateful stream processing applications which you can deploy in an environment of your choice. In this talk, Viktor explains the essentials of dynamic scaling and state migration in Kafka Streams.


Viktor Gamov is a Developer Advocate at Confluent, the company that makes an event streaming platform based on Apache Kafka.
He's a professional conference speaker on distributed systems, streaming data, JVM and DevOps topics, and is regular on events including JavaOne, Devoxx, OSCON, QCon, and co-authored O’Reilly’s «Enterprise Web Development.»

Talk: Severless from Scratch
Speaker: Dan Gordon from Gitlab


Starting from scratch, let's provision a Gitlab cluster, install Knative, and build a serverless CI/CD function to deliver software. We'll explore how to create a platform for developers and enable folks to get off the ground with serverless functionality.


Dan Gordon is a Technical Marketing Manager at GitLab, where he focuses on helping others see how a single application for the entire software delivery life cycle can be more efficient, more successful, and at the same time humanize the software process. Dan is passionate about making modern software delivery practices as ubiquitous as wearing a seatbelt.

Talk: Living on the Edge with K3s
Speaker: Jason van Brackel

With a 40MB binary footprint and an easy installation process K3s is the perfect Kubernetes distribution for working out on the edge. During this presentation we will discuss k3s architecture, compare it to upstream Kubernetes, and demo the setup of a k3s platform.


Jason van Brackel is the Director of Community for Rancher Labs. Currently focused on DevOps, Jason assists open source Kubernetes and Rancher users to make the most of their development and infrastructure investments. He is also the organizer of the Philadelphia Kubernetes Meetup and loves teaching at code camps, user groups and meetups.
