About this event

Hi Everyone,

Right before easter we are happy to announce our first meetup 2024 at the good folks of SQUER and our very first cooperation with the Vienna DevOps Meetup as well as with Glasskube!

This is the online event. The on-premises event is published here:

The State of Package Management on Kubernetes – An in-depth Comparison of Helm, Timoni and Glasskube

Package Management on Kubernetes is one of the most pressing issues in the Cloud Native community. A concept which is widely known from other ecosystems like desktop and mobile computing has not yet been realized for cloud computing.

In this session, we will learn about the different possibilities for deploying cloud-native applications into a Kubernetes cluster and its configuration options, dependency management, upgrade possibilities, and backups.

We will take a look at the inner workings of Helm from both a distributor and user perspective. How can a distributor create a package and distribute it, and how can a user install and use the packages?

In addition to Helm, we will provide a brief overview of Timoni, which uses OCI images as package bundles, and compare the advantages and shortcomings of this approach.

We will also introduce – a newly created package manager that is already part of the CNCF Landscape that is designed as a cloud-native application itself and features real dependency management, automated updates, and a GUI.

During a live demo we will explore the possibilities of using Glasskube in combination with Argo CD.

Happy to see you soon!
