Kurt’s focused on designing, implementing, and maintaining a distributed system capable of preparing petabytes of biological data for use by researchers developing cures and treatments for childhood cancer.

7:00 - Second Talk - Topic: Demystifying Consul and Consul Connect
Speaker: Todd Radel, Technology Evangelist, HashiCorp
Length: 60 minutes

Deploying and adopting enterprise software can often be hard, but that’s not the case with Consul. I will show you how to deploy Consul servers and agents into a Kubernetes cluster, register your applications and services, discover services, and connect them with transparent mTLS encryption and authentication.

Todd is on a mission to make complex software easy to understand. As the Consul Evangelist at HashiCorp, he speaks at conferences, works in the field with customers, builds content, drives product direction, and contributes code, with a special focus on Consul Connect and Kubernetes. He has worked extensively with many of HashiCorp’s largest customers, including Comcast.
