About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts!

We have a couple of exciting talks planned for November. 

First, Sarthak Gangopadhyay from Google Cloud Platform's Apigee team will present on the relationship between API management and Istio service meshes. He'll speak to lesson's learned from the field and in relation to their own systems. 

We also have Kevin from Squarespace presenting on some of the exciting new features in Kubernetes 1.8 - using CustomResourceDefinitions, Dynamic Admission Control, and Initializers to control how applications operate with Kubernetes and how to finely manage Kubernetes itself. Come listen to him speak on the provided Go client libraries and how to use code generators to quickly create cloud native applications.
