The May meetup will feature two trending and important topics, in addition to the first speaker in our brand-new First-Time Speaker Series.
Serverless Computing in Action with Knative
Speaker: Doug Tidwell, Red Hat
Serverless computing has been around for several years, but the Knative project (knative.dev) has changed the game. As its name implies, Knative is a Kubernetes-native environment that delivers everything you'd expect from a serverless environment and more. In this presentation, you'll see code deployed to Kubernetes, Knative, and Istio simultaneously. While you're breathless with excitement from this demonstration, we'll investigate all of the infrastructure generated for you, only to see Knative scale it to zero as time goes by. Worry not: The service can still be invoked, as Knative reactivates it as needed.
As a bonus, you'll see a Raspberry Pi version of the photo booth, featuring a Lego-attached camera mounted to the back of the RPi touchscreen. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll have the opportunity to go home with a souvenir photo. Hope to see you there!
Speaker: Maria Lamardo, Systems Engineer @ Nutanix
