Extending the k8s API to suit our workflow

Joaquim will talk about how to create custom CRD, Controller and create a Prometheus Alert in Kubernetes.

Kubernetes Autoscaling with Custom Metrics

Autoscaling of services in Kubernetes helps reducing the operation management of the cluster and reduce hardware costs. Until recently autoscaling of deployments was restricted using CPU and memory metrics but now we have the ability to define also custom metrics that drive the autoscaling. We'll use Prometheus as a backend for autoscaling and do a demo to see how it works.
