Lightweight Feature Envs w/ Spring Cloud & K8s
Automated builds and deployments are standard procedures nowadays - but the environments we deploy to are often still heavyweight and hardly fully automated.

Spawning new environments on demand can soon get pretty expensive, in terms of effort but also in terms of hard cash when using cloud services like AWS.

In this talk we are going to reflect about the different types of environment isolation and their pros and cons.

Finally, we will talk and see the concept of "Lightweight Environments" which we use in our system in order to test individual features of one or more services embedded in a complex infrastructure.
