About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts!

Come join us for some post-turkey day / pre-Kubecon / Tuesday Tacos and talks!

Eric Tan and Katie McKew from JOOR will demonstrate how they leverage K8s in their software development process - quickly standing up fully functional instances of the application w unique URLs.

Then, we'll dig into Pulumi, an OSS cloud configuration SDK aimed at streamlining updates to ConfigMaps, enabling A/B traffic splitting and staged rollouts - deploy reliably and predictably, without sacrificing the ability to reason about the blast radius of a change.

SPONSORED: Big thanks to NetApp, Sysdig and Tigera for their support!
