>_Dimple Dalby (@dimpledalby) - Getting your containers ready for production
Comparethemarket has been running services on Kubernetes for over 2 years now. Getting our services production ready has not been easy. This talk is about a curated checklist you might want to use to make your journey a lot easier than ours.

Dimple is a Cloud Platform Lead at Comparethemarket. She has a background in development and has been in the DevOps world for around 8 years.

At Yelp our security team faced a fairly common problem of tracing outbound TCP connections back to their owning processes on our container-based PaaS, so we had the idea to use the Linux kernel’s eBPF subsystem for its tracing capabilities. But how to deploy a greenfield security project across a fleet quickly and easily to prove its utility in order to invest further time in it? In this talk we’ll look out how you can use eBPF and Docker in harmony to get cutting edge tracing capabilities without all the pain!

Matt is an Infrastructure Security Engineer at Yelp by day and just generally dissatisfied by the order that the 0s and 1s are in by night.

Ziglu runs Kubernetes and Istio in production, and it adds up to a complicated system. In order to debug deeply one day, Matt had to dive into the inner workings of Docker networking, virtual switches, and sidecar containers. This talk will share what he learned about off these systems, in the hope it’ll save other people time!

Matt is Head of Platform at Ziglu. He was originally a software engineer and has been doing infrastructure for 7 years.
