Wouldnt it be nice if as developers we could just focus on our code? That is the promise of serverless. But what if we wanted to leverage our existing kubernetes service & developers? Knative focuses on building these tools & services in a way that elevates the existing Kubernetes experience.
Kubernetes excels at container scheduling, & offers useful primitives for automating infrastructure. But weve noticed that development teams often struggle when they use vanilla Kubernetes for application deployments. By all means, use Kubernetes to push containers all day long. But if you want to push application code or a function Kubernetes on its own isnt enough.
Knative is an open source software layer that helps cloud service providers & enterprise platform operators deliver a serverless experience to developers on any cloud. Its a way to abstract the operational overhead of deploying & managing workloads that run on K8s & provides a consistent approach so that developers can focus on writing cool code. It also gives build primitives that allows for creating pipelines for building & deploying on Kubernetes from Kubernetes.
In this talk we will learn what Knative is, why it was created & how you can get started.
Attendees can expect to learn:
- Learn how to run serverless workload on Kubernetes
- Create build pipelines running on Kubernetes
- 6:30-7pm - Doors Open for Networking & Food
- 7-8pm - Main Presentation
- 8-830pm - Q&A + Networking
- 9pm - Venue closes
