Hello South Bay Kubernetes Enthusiasts!
I hope all is treating you well. This months meetup is happening on the 17th and is being hosted at Tek Systems. We have some great speakers lined up for the evening.
Title: Thinking Kubernetes application packaging from first principles
Abstract: We, AppsCode, publish the a number of charts (currently 7) in stable repository. We also explored how to use Helm for managing internal applications. In this talk, I would like to share what worked for us as a chart publisher and consumer. I would also share some pain points we experienced and how we addressed those in kubepack.
Bio: Tamal Saha if Founder & CEO, AppsCode Inc. Tamal Saha is involved in Helm community for over an year both as a chart publisher and consumer. He has also contributed to the Helm project. Currently he is involved in developing Kubepack.com.
Building full-stack apps with YugaByte DB on Kubernetes
YugaByte DB is a low latency, transactional database for building geo-distributed cloud services. It unifies the best features of SQL (transactions, secondary indexes, table-schema) and NoSQL (auto-sharding and fault-tolerance, low read latency, schemaless) databases. You can interact with YugaByte DB using Cassandra Query Language, Redis API and Postgres in the works. It runs natively on Kubernetes using the StatefulSets feature.
Having looked at the design goals and what you can do with YugaByte DB, we are going to look at a hands-on demo of a full-stack e-commerce app built using YugaByte DB and fully running on top of Kubernetes using StatefulSets.
Karthik received his BS and MS in CS from IIT-M and UT Austin. Karthik started working on Cassandra about 10 years ago - before it was called Cassandra or was open-sourced and well before the world knew of it. He then went on to work on the guts of HBase, was instrumental in driving adoption of HBase at Facebook across several large use-cases and helped a number of companies adopt HBase as a part of the open source community. He is an open-source HBase committer. He is now one of the co-founders of YugaByte, a company that is building a cloud-native database for mission critical applications bringing the best of NoSQL and SQL together.
