7:00 - 7:30 - GitOps with Gitkube: Git based developer workflows on Kubernetes - Tanmai Gopal

Gitkube is a tool for building and deploying docker images on Kubernetes using git push. After a simple initial setup, users can continue to git push their repos to build and deploy to Kubernetes automatically.

Features include:
* No dependencies except native tooling (git, kubectl)
* Plug and play installation
* Public key-based authentication
* Control access to git remotes using RBAC
* Support for namespace-based multi-tenancy. Remotes can only deploy to their own namespace
* No assumptions about repository structure

7:30 - 8:00 - Service Mesh, Istio, Envoy, what a fine mesh we find ourselves in - Christopher Liljenstolpe

We’ll cover what a Service Mesh is, how Istio implements a service mesh, and what benefits that Istio-based service mesh brings to both the developer and the DevOps/SRE/Operations community.

We’ll cover some of the more popular Istio components and plug-ins, what’s new in the latest release, and what’s coming.
