"Building blocks of Knative"

Knative is a fairly new Open Source project that extends Kubernetes for serverless workloads. Knative was started by Google and some other big companies like SAP and Pivotal. In this talk Johannes and Hendrik will guide you through the three building blocks of Knative,
build, serving and eventing. Furthermore, we will show you how you can use each block independent and how to put them together to build a serverless platform or make the life of your developers easier.

About Johannes:
Johannes Scheuermann has been working as a Cloud Platform Engineer at inovex since 2014. His daily work involves innovative technologies and topics all around the modern data center environment, like Kubernetes, immutable infrastructure and – quite obviously – cloud platforms. Amongst other things Johannes supported the construction of the platform for EXARING and multiple big Kubernetes platforms for 1&1 Internet (, GMX etc.) in a leading role.

About Hendrik:
Hendrik Still is an Application Developer at inovex since 2014.
He develops and engineers application services. Besides, he loves building deployment pipelines to allow fast development cycles and deploy to production with confidents. His preferred deployment target for his Microservices is a well-managed Kubernetes cluster.

"Jenkins X - CI/CD in cloudy environments"

With the Kubernetes ecosystem growing larger everyday, there are several tools addressing cloud-native continuous deployments. Jenkins X is one of them, trying to combine multiple existing projects to form an extensive CLI based deployment suite. Is this a promising approach? Should I use it in my production environment? How do I get cute cat pictures into my pull request comments? These and other important questions will be addressed in this talk.


See you there.
