Introducing Helm Package Management and FaaS with Docker


We're excited to welcome Docker Santa Clara as co-host for this meetup!


6:00-6:30 - Networking, happy hour and dinner with the JFrog community

6:30-7:15 - Function Composition in a Serverless World - Timirah James
As serverless applications grow more complex, function _composition_, or the ability for functions to call each other, becomes important. This talk will dive into three different approaches to compose FaaS functions together to form large applications: Function Coordination, Event-driven Composition, and Workflows.

7:15-8:00 - Where the HELM are your binaries?!- Ankush Chadha, JFrog
As docker and microservices architecture is becoming more popular, Helm is becoming a popular way to deploy multiple microservices on k8s.
In this meetup, we will talk about helm and share few tips and tricks we used to write and maintain charts to install and upgrade JFrog products on k8s (on-prem or cloud). We will also talk about the scale related problems with helm and then summarize the talk with a demo of a k8s registry.

8:00-8:30 - Q&A, closing, and networking
