The journey to realizing DevOps nirvana in any enterprise is full of obstacles for developers and other stakeholders. To help us understand the key steps for implementing our very own automated DevOps strategy, Anthony Tortola of SUSE will explore common pitfalls and outline best practices.
We’re also very excited to welcome local group member Ralph Squillance from Microsoft. He will dig into why WebAssembly and Kubernetes go together like peanut butter and bananas -- you'll use it when you need it, but otherwise you'll eat pizza.
Speaking of pizza, we’ll actually be serving antipasti, dim sum and an assortment of middle eatern dips.

WebAssembly and Kubernetes: I don't know this cheese of which you speak
WebAssembly and Kubernetes go together like peanut butter and bananas -- you'll use it when you need it, but otherwise you'll eat pizza. Come get up to speed on this area of distributed computing quickly and easily, starting with CDN functions and going out into "periphery" computing from there. Enjoy a argument as I sketch out all the beauty of WebAssembly in your clusters and also outline what you can't or shouldn't do -- yet. Yes! There will be demos and things you get to take away to try.
