Talk: Kubernetes Operators - the next frontier in application automation

Terraform, Cloud Formation and similar tools are great for provisioning new infrastructure. Kubernetes provides the next step by continuously monitoring the resources it creates and making sure they are working correctly. However standard Kubernetes resources like Deployment and StatefulSet only get you as far. Many application require special treatment during their lifecycle, which most of the time is still left to human operators. Kubernetes Operators offer a new way to fully automate management of any application. I will explain what are Operators, and show how to create one. Live demo included!

Speaker: Ádám Sándor (@adamsand0r)

After long years of building software and throwing it over the wall, I happily dived into Cloud Native to break that wall down for good. Now I'm spreading the word about Kubernetes, Continuous Delivery and Docker to all who are willing to listen. I mainly do this in my job as a Cloud Native Consultant at Container Solutions.
