Matt Rogish -- Kubernetes at a high level

Matt has worked as a programmer, DBA, was CTO for The J. Peterman Company, helped create an awesome open-source mobile application framework as Director of Development for Toura, and built an amazing development team and disruptive financial application as CTO at Funding Gates. He was Director of Product for Single Platform (a Constant Contact company), helping the product team (Design, PM, Engineering) be more awesome and was the CTO of Rails Machine, a Ruby on Rails hosting company. 

Now, as co-founder and CEO of ReactiveOps (, a DevOps-as-a-Service and Kubernetes/AWS/GKE consulting company he’s lead growth from zero to 14 people (and growing!), built a company/product/strategy, managed P&L, and (so far) have kept it from cratering into the ground. 

Talk Abstract: Kubernetes at a high level

In this talk, Matt Rogish will discuss Kubernetes at a high level, how ReactiveOps is using it, and a quick introduction of our open-source projects “Pentagon” and “rok8scripts” which enable fast and easy standup of everything necessary for Kubernetes on AWS—including VPC, the clusters themselves, and production / staging / test environments. At the end of this discussion, you’ll have a better understanding of Kubernetes use cases and some helpful tools to enable your company to leverage Kubernetes for world-class infrastructure.
