1. Writing application for Kubernetes
When we say Kubernetes is an open source project that helps us orchestrate the containers, people who are new to this field or who have just started learning about get really confused about this, in this session I am planning to cover architecture level overview of Kubernetes as well has how to use its resources (ConfigMaps, Services, Deployments and other controllers) to get your app deployed on Kubernetes.
A part from that I will also be discussing about the how to go about resolving a problem that you are facing on your cluster, for example if a pod is not scheduled on a node etc.

Vivek Singh is a Software Developer at InfraCloud technologies, and has been working on Kubernetes and related technologies for some time now. He has also tried his hands into serverless world on top of Kubernetes and now a days exploring data backup and recovery of stateful application that are deployed on Kubernetes.


2. Launching Windows VM using KubeVirt & Openshift
KubeVirt is an open-source project that offers you a VM-based virtualization option on top of any Kubernetes cluster. Lots of work happened in this area in the last couple of years, and Kubevirt is reaching the maturity stage to become production-ready. In this session, we will see how to deploy Kubevirt in Openshift Container Platform (OCP) 4.2 and get your first windows VM up and running inside OCP.
