Talk 1: Save money running Kubernetes workers with AWS Spot Fleet

Presenter: Caio Trevisan, Cloud Engineer @Contino

A look into how to leverage AWS Spot Fleet for running Kubernetes workers saving up to 90%. Let's go through a quick cluster setup to handle frequent up/down scaling and make sure it never ends without active instances making it a great fit for non-production/QA/test environments or even production for the braves!

Talk 2: GitOps Deployment Patterns - FluxCD

Presenter: Praveen Mali, Senior DevOps Engineer @Dubber

In the session I will explain GitOps and various GitOps tools. Dive in depth about Flux CD which is an CNCF Sandbox project.
Flux is a tool that automatically ensures that the state of your
Kubernetes cluster matches the configuration you’ve supplied in Git.
It uses an operator in the cluster to trigger deployments inside Kubernetes, which means that you don’t need a separate continuous delivery tool.
