Hello South Bay Kubernetes Enthusiasts!
I hope this month has been treating you splendidly! We have planned another great meetup for May, with two industry titans as speakers. This months meetup is happening on the 15th and is being hosted at Tek Systems.
Our first speaker is from Rancher Labs
Title: Webhooks for automated updates
Abstract: In most software projects, there is a tremendous focus on increasing efficiency and reliability. Rolling updates in Kubernetes is a really good example of how real-time updates to applications can be made reliable, without any downtime. Once you have a reliable system, you then need to make your software development process even more efficient. A key component in efficiency is automation.
Automated builds on Docker cloud are a great way to efficiently build images when new code is pushed. In this talk we will discuss how we can take automation one step further. We will make use of the Kuberbnetes API calls, along with Docker Hub’s webhooks feature, to automatically start rolling updates of deployments when a new image/tag is pushed to Docker Hub. We will demonstrate how you can write a micro-service that will make these calls after consuming the data pushed by Docker Hub’s webhook.
Bio: Rajashree, an NC State graduate is a Software Engineer at Rancher Labs. She loves programming in Golang and working on container orchestration. She lives by the motto, “You’ll never know what you can do, until you try”. This has led her not only to being a developer, but also an amateur writer on Medium, and a recent half marathon runner! Her idea of a good weekend encompasses one where she spends time reading good blogs, and also just binge watching any Netflix shows.

Our second speaker is the CTO of Arrikto Inc.
Self-service, decentralized storage for multi-cloud K8s
In this talk we will describe the current K8s APIs and storage options
for backing stateful applications. We will introduce a solution that
runs containers over super-fast, ephemeral, local NVMe storage, but
still allows you to instantly snapshot and move the whole app: either
within the same K8s cluster, or to another K8s cluster, even on a
different cloud provider. We will show how this enables instant node
recovery, multi-point backup/restore, and thin cloning of
pre-initialized DBs for CI/CD workflows. Live demo included!
Vangelis Koukis is co-Founder & CTO of Arrikto, a Palo Alto startup
transforming how distributed applications discover and consume data,
and how end-users collaborate on this data in the cloud-native era.
