Join us for a great night of food, drink, and learning about Kubernetes CRDs and Operators.

One of the challenges of orchestration tools such as Kubernetes is determining who works for who. It is easy to deploy a suite of applications into a cluster, but how do you manage the order and logic of provisioning, upgrading, or failure recovery? Is this left to humans manned with pagers? Operators was introduced a couple of years ago as the solution to this problem in the Kubernetes eco-system.

This talk will walk through the basics of Kubernetes APIs and Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs) which underpins the required basic understanding. We will identify the solution that operators provide with a look at the early stage sdks and frameworks. We will then focus on Kubernetes Universal Declarative Operator (KUDO) which is intended to be a declarative approach for create a new operator. Attends will leave with knowledge of how smooth building a new operator can be.
