About this event

Hi all! 
Join us for our Q2 meetup! This one will be presentation format, intermediate level but everyone is welcome. Thank you to our usual sponsors, and a special shout out to Canvas Pop and Aqua.

Talk 1: 
Kubernetes: Developing on Windows, Deploying on Linux by Rodrigue Cloutier, Senior Online Programmer at Ubisoft

The Kubernetes community and tooling is currently oriented towards POSIX systems. For various reasons, many developers still need to run a development environment on Windows, while deploying actual services in a Linux environment. This talk is based on what we've learned while developing the next online platform for Ubisoft's flagship games. It will cover the current state of tooling when working in a mixed environment, and some of the practices we've developed to work effectively with the current generation of tools such as minikube and Helm. We will also explore what can be learned about how these and future tools can be better adapted to support developers working in these mixed environments. Topics covered include: 
- Current state of the Kubernetes tooling in mixed environments 
- Using POSIX tooling within "native" Windows shells 
- Current virtualization technologies caveats and proper usage 
- Best practices for developing mixed-environment aware tools

Talk 2: 
Container Security Deep Dive & Kubernetes by Tsvi Korren, Director of Technical Services at Aqua

Container security best practices ​and implications in a Kubernetes environment. Tsvi will cover security for your containerized applications from development, through build, ship, and run, and as a result, how to make your entire Kubernetes deployment more secure.
