About this event

Hello Seattle Kubernauts!

The snow is clearing out, the new tunnel is open, please join us for networking and two great presentations.

Guinevere will take us through load balancing across multiple clusters using kube-service-exporter. This open source project, written in Go, facilitates highly available cluster designs. This is currently done using Consul, consul-template, and HAProxy, but the future holds more. There will be a demo so you can see it all in action!

The second presentation will feature Dan introducing Tilt. Tilt improves local development of Kubernetes microservices with a personal instance of your app. Tilt updates your deployment when you edit, so you can see your app live, end-to-end. When there's a problem, Tilt highlights the error so you can stop playing 20 questions with `kubectl`. Additionally, Tilt's fast_build mode can turn minutes of docker build into seconds of update. This is an exciting demo-based presentation.

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