6:30 PM -- Doors open for refreshments & networking
7:00 - 8:00 PM -- Rosemary Wang & Abel Tamrat will talk about "Kubernetes: Learning from Zero to Production"
I have to learn Kubernetes - where do I start?
With all of the awesome community introductions to Kubernetes, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start when faced with the reality of learning it. In this talk, well take you on our journey of how & what we learned about using Kubernetes in production...in nine months. Well do our best to answer the questions:- What did we need to understand about the internals of Kubernetes?- What are the constructs we used the most?- What were some useful Kubernetes patterns?- What about Kubernetes security?- How did we handle cluster management?- What were some of the pitfalls we found?
As an explorer of infrastructure automation & enthusiast of cloud, Rosemary Wang works to bridge the technical & cultural barriers between infrastructure engineers & application developers. Whether it be helping an infrastructure engineer learn to code or an application developer troubleshoot infrastructure failures, she has a fascination for solving intractable problems with code. Rosemary interfaces with vendors, clients, startups, & open source projects to find creative software solutions for enterprise infrastructure systems. When she is not drawing on whiteboards, Rosemary valiantly attempts to reverse engineer stacks of various infrastructure systems on her laptop while foraging for tasty victuals around the world.
