About this event

Los Angeles Kubernauts and Cloud Native enthusiasts!

Our next meetup will be January 31, 2019. We will dive into Tilt and then take a look at the operator pattern using Kubebuilder. (Please note: This is a change from the previously announced talk focused on Gatekeeper and the Open Policy Agent.)

Are you a local group member working on some cool open source / cloud native project, we'd love to have you present. Submit your talk here : https://goo.gl/forms/nBjjoN5SXsVAy7Vc2


6:30 - 7:00 - Gather, Drink, Grab a Plate

7:00 - 7:30 - Local K8s Dev with No Stress - Windmill - Dan Bentley

Tilt improves local development of Kubernetes microservices with a personal instance of your app. Tilt updates your deployment when you edit, so you can see your app live, end-to-end. When there's a problem, Tilt highlights the error so you can stop playing 20 questions with `kubectl`. And Tilt's fast_build mode can turn minutes of docker build into seconds of update.

7:30 - 8:00 - Captain's Log: Deploy your Blog on K8s - Replicated - Dex Horthy

Feel like overkill? It just might be. Captain's Log is a Kubernetes Operator that makes it dead simple to manage your static content using just the Kubernetes API. This leads to the obvious question: "why?". In this talk, we'll explore how building simple projects is a great way to deep dive into more advanced kubernetes technlogies, and dig into the power and flexibility of Kubebuilder and the operator pattern.


Dan is co-founder at Windmill. Before that he was an engineer at Google and Twitter and opened for The Who.

Here's a comprehensive map of all the available parking spots: https://goo.gl/IHvLEn .

Once Blackwelder is full we suggest you find street parking on La Cienega Blvd or the free public lot at the corner of Fairfax and Adams (also marked on the map). Also the La Cienega stop on the Metro Expo line is close to the venue. There will also be enough free beer that Uber might be a good choice :)
