7:00 - 7:30 - Continuous Development through Continuous Delivery
- Vic Iglesias, Google

We will take a look at the life cycle of a Kubernetes-native application from inception, to iteration and then finally to production deployment using tools like Skaffold, Kustomize and Spinnaker to accomplish each phase.

7:30 - 8:00 - Can You Really Build Database-as-a-Service on Kubernetes? (Of Course You Can) - Gopal Sharma, Diamanti

Databases benefit greatly from containerization in terms of performance, ease-of-deployment, and scalability. However, building database-as-a-service (DBaaS) on Kubernetes can be a complex, time-consuming project where some database services are run outside of the cluster for the sake of leveraging persistent storage. In this session, Diamanti CTO Gopal Sharma will talk about key infrastructure requirements of DBaaS, and how storage and networking needs to be architected in order for developers and application owners to build and manage high-performing, stateful databases on Kubernetes.


Vic Iglesias is a Cloud Solutions Architect at Google. He helps customers understand and deliver value from continuous integration, continuous delivery and cloud native architectures. He has been a contributor to the Helm community since very early on and has helped maintain the Kubernetes Charts repository since its inception. He now works closely with the teams building tools like Skaffold, Kustomize, and Spinnaker.


Gopal Sharma is a Founder and CTO of Diamanti based in San Jose.
