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 Ubisoft for hosting us, Aqua and Univa.

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 Ching-Chiang Van, Container Security Solutions Architect at Aqua Security

Container security best practices ​and implications in a Kubernetes environment. This talk 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.

Talk 3:
Dev / Test / Ops – Gain More Horsepower and Reduce Costs by Sharing Kubernetes Clusters by Ian Lumb, Solutions Architect at Univa

Containerization coupled with DevOps is revolutionizing application development and deployment, but organizations are creating silos of clusters that limit the operational efficiencies that can be gained by sharing hardware, software and systems administrators. This talk will cover how improved cluster management and consolidation at the orchestration, network and storage layers can yield great returns for developers, DevOps and IT management.
