About this event

Title: Milking the most out of 1000's of k8s clusters.

Summary: We'll discuss the design reasons behind running an independent Kubernetes cluster at the edge in each Chick-fil-A restaurant... the challenges the team over came to achieve this, and the scale considerations that managing many clusters at scale brings. This will be an interactive presentation, so be ready for great discussions as we walk through our bizarre use case.

Caleb Hurd is an SRE Engineer at Chick-fil-A with a broad background that includes Fortune 500’s, startups and everything in between. However, his passion is specifically in enabling small development teams to deliver their software reliably and rapidly to customers by empowering them with the tools and pipelines to do so.

With the recent explosion in incredible, but also confusing technologies that enable rapid delivery, Caleb enjoys fitting together just the right tools for the right job.

He enjoys photography, coffee and spending time with his high-school sweetheart and two young kids... He also happens to work on SRE stuff in his spare time.
