7:00 - 7:30 - OpenFaaS -- Serverless Functions Made Simple - Eric Stoekl

In this session we will introduce OpenFaaS, which is an open source Serverless function hosting platform. OpenFaaS can be deployed on Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, or other container orchestrators, and allows you to write Serverless functions in any programming language. I will introduce the project with a slide deck (about 15 minutes), then perform a demo of OpenFaaS in action (10 minutes), then leave the rest of the talk open for questions.

7:30 - 8:00 - Migrating to Envoy in Kubernetes: The Process and the Benefits - Mark McBride

In late 2017 Turbine Labs migrated the proxy at the center of their traffic control product from NGINX to Envoy. In this talk Mark will outline the decision making criteria for embarking on this migration and the steps they took to make this transition transparent. He will also walk through the engineering effort, from packaging, deployment, monitoring, and committing new features back to the Envoy community. At the end he will describe the benefits of the new system, and talk about future improvements.

8:00 - 8:30 - Wrap-up / Depart
