About this event

6:45 - 7:45 - "Knative" - Scott Andrews (Knative Approver) & Mark Fisher

Knative is a new open source project started by engineers from Google, Pivotal, IBM, SAP, and RedHat. It’s a collection of components that extend Kubernetes into a Multicloud FaaS platform. It includes three major parts: Serving, Build, and Eventing.
Serving is a scale-to-zero, request-driven compute runtime which leverages Istio to route traffic amongst revisions.
Build provides a pluggable model for building containers from source code.
Eventing provides building blocks for consuming and producing events that adhere to the CloudEvents specification.
As per Jason McGee of IBM: “Knative could one day enable a developer to use Apache OpenWhisk to orchestrate all parts of a cloud app in a serverless fashion, such as running both containers and functions-as-a-service events, all on-demand and on an as-needed basis,”
