About this event

Hey Kubernetes and OpenShift Enthusiasts!

This is the Kubernetes and OpenShift Meetup #35.

6:00 - 6:30pm: social, pizza, soft drinks, water

6:30 - 7:15 A Naive Kubernetes CI/CD pipeline - John Goodwin, Metabolon

How we setup naive pipelines to build and deploy to kubernetes hosted on-prem or in the cloud. We won't be showing industry specific secret sauce, but we got permission to show exactly how our builds and pipelines were configured (minus our creds). This talk should be of great value for anyone who wants to use kubernetes, shies away from black boxes, but needs some digestable chunk of deliverable technology value. There *ARE* better ways, guaranteed. Copy our best ideas, improve on the rest.

About the speaker:
John Goodwin is one of three Principal Software Engineers at a metabolite testing company, Metabolon. Working in software > 20 years professionally, his interests span from hardware, software, databases, micro controllers, networking, machine learning, micro services, comprehensible systems, CI/CD to endurance sports like triathlons and marathons. An insatiable reader, he reads anything he can get his hands on, except the news.

7:15 break

7:15 - 8:00 Knative - A New Way To Kube! - Doug Davis, IBM

Kubernetes has often been described as a platform on which to build platforms. However, in practice, it has become 'the platform' and users are exposed to all of its features and complexities. That's about to change! With a new project called Knative, users will be able to leverage the benefits of Kubernetes without being forced to manage, and understand, its nuances. In addition to that, it introduces a whole new set of serverless inspired features (such as scale-to-zero) which were not easily available to Kubernetes users. In this presentation you'll learn what Knative is, what its goals are and how it will forever change how you deploy applications to Kubernetes.

About the speaker:
Doug works in IBM's Hybrid Cloud division. He's been working on Cloud related technologies for many years and has worked on many of the most popular OSS projects, including OpenStack, CloudFoundry, Docker and Kubernetes. He's currently the OM for Knative, co-chairing the CNCF's Serverless WG and the Cloud Events project.
