About this event

Hello Charlotte Kubernauts!

Folks have asked for it, and the time has come to reboot our meetup! On October 16th, 2019, we're going to have two great talks for Kubernetes fans. These talks are inclusive for everyone, from operations to developers, as well as security professionals trying to understand more about Kubernetes.

The first talk with be from our friends at Solo.io:
Christian Posta (Twitter: @christianposta) is Global Field CTO at Solo.io, former Chief Architect at Red Hat, author of Istio in Action, Manning, Istio Service Mesh, O'Reilly 2018, Microservices for Java Developers, O’Reilly 2016, blogger, speaker, open-source enthusiast and contributor on projects including Istio, Kubernetes, and more. Christian has spent time at both enterprises as well as web-scale companies and now helps companies create and deploy large-scale, cloud-native resilient, distributed architectures.

Talk time: 30 minutes
Title: Kubernetes Ingress to Service Mesh
Abstract: Kubernetes users need to allow traffic to flow into and within the cluster. Treating the application traffic separately from the business logic allows presents new possibilities in how service to service traffic is served, controlled and observed — and provides a transition to intra cluster networking like Service Mesh. With microservices, there is a concept of both North / South traffic (incoming requests from end users to the cluster) and East / West (intra cluster) communication between the services. In this talk we will explain how Envoy Proxy works in Kubernetes as a proxy for both of these traffic directions and how it can be leveraged to do things like traffic shaping, security, and integrate the north/south to east/west behavior.

The second talk will be from the folks Tigera, creators of Project Calico:
Brandon Jozsa (Twitter: @v1k0d3n) is a Senior Solutions Architect at Tigera.io, and previously worked for large corporations such as AT&T, Charter, and Red Hat. While at AT&T, Brandon championed the notion that AIC should migrate all of its core services to Kubernetes using Helm. This led to the introduction of the OpenStack-Helm project, and thus the Airship and Akraino projects were later conceived. At Charter, Brandon was the Principal Architect and core development lead for the SE Cloud Infrastructure team.

Talk time: 30 minutes
Title: Smoother Sailing and Scaling with Helm Version 3
Abstract: What’s all this buzz about Helm v3 you ask? Helm users have been asking for changes, and the development team has answered by rearchitecting Helm in version 3. This technical session will cover a wide range of improvements to Helm that address operability, scalability, and security concerns that users had with prior versions of Helm. During the session we’ll help users create a library that will improve scalability, security, and overall workflow complete with example code.

Food and drinks will be sponsored by Tigera.io, and location is sponsored by Solo.io. Location is TBD, but this will be updated in the next day or so. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
