TALKS

#1 - Sander Knape - Skyworkz - Kubernetes from the ground up: through the looking glass of the Kubernetes internals

Kubernetes has become the de-facto container orchestration solution. Given this popularity, many managed services have been introduced recently that remove the burden of operating a Kubernetes cluster.

However, even when using a managed service it's important to understand the internals of your cluster. Without proper understanding of the different components involved in operating a Kubernetes cluster, debugging issues - and you will have issues - is impossible.

The best way to learn Kubernetes? Building it from the ground up! During this hands-on session I will spin up a Kubernetes cluster in AWS on EC2. While I do this, I explain the different components that I configure and how these components integrate with each other.

At the end of the presentation you will have a better understanding of how Kubernetes works under the hood. And you'll hopefully have gained the courage to build a cluster from scratch yourself.

#2 - Lyle Henkeman - Skyworkz - Kubernetes cool! How do I see what's going on?

Now that I have my pods and clusters running, how do I get insight into them? You can examine application performance in a Kubernetes cluster by examining the containers, pods, services, and the characteristics of the overall cluster.

*Sidecars and DaemonSets: Battle of containerization logging patterns.
*Sophisticated and powerful logging with K8s & Prometheus.

At the end of this session you will be able to understand proactive Logging and monitoring, Cluster visibility and capacity planning, Trigger alerts and notification, Metric dashboards.
