Sail in the Cloud - An Introduction to Istio
---------

Microservices architecture has changed how companies develop and deploy applications. This change has affected testing process as well. New techniques have emerged and others have been enhanced. Does your organization wish to achieve unicorn like speed? With N deploys per day? Or a lead time (time to business value from idea to production) measured in days/weeks instead of months/years? In this session, we will not only describe how to use Istio and Kubernetes but actively demonstrate 3 specific techniques that you can use immediately following the session.

Currently, Istio is gaining a lot of traction as service-mesh implementation for Kubernetes. In this session, we are going to explore how to install Istio, and how to use it to release new versions of our services correctly.

Alex is a software engineer at Red Hat in Developers group. He is a passionate about Java world, software automation and he believes in the open source software model.

Production Grade K8s Clusters on AWS with Kops
---------

In this talk, we'll live-demo bringing up a new production grade Kubernetes cluster in AWS. To do this, we'll use a tool called kops. We'll cover how kops works and why I recommend using it (at least until EKS is generally available). We'll also talk about what makes a cluster production grade and how to integrate a new Kubernetes cluster with your existing infrastructure. This will be a DevOps focused talk and we'll dig into AWS networking, Terraform, and how to manage your core Kubernetes manifests.

Luke is a software engineer who started out in frontend and slowly got pulled down the stack until he could no longer see out from behind mountains of bash scripts and YAML files. He works now as a Kubernetes consultant and maintainer of Atlantis, an open source tool that helps teams automate their Terraform workflows. He is from Vancouver, Canada and is living in Barcelona for a month.

One year of kubernetes in production, lessons learned
---------

Just a brief recap over our experiences maintaining a 30 nodes cluster with different workloads and tenants. I will cover QoS policies, dev vs pro workloads, live migrations struggle, some production issue and maybe other topics.

About Fabian Selles Rosa: System Engineer at Schibsted. I work on a team who had managed Mesos clusters for 2 years in production, we had added Kubernetes clusters into the mix lately.
