Tech Talk @ Instana

10415 Morado Cir

Hey Coders, This month's tech talk is brought to you by Instana Speakers - Dahlia Bock Title - Declarative Helm charts with Jsonnet Talk - Helm is a package manager that simplifies and standardizes application deployment and management on Kubernetes. However, this simplicity ends when you have to manage complex resources and configuration for multiple targets and you end up having to template YAML templates, which is probably something you'd want to avoid. Over the past several months, Dahlia has been using Jsonnet templates to manage Helm charts and configuration which must be deployable on multiple Kubernetes platforms. In this talk, we will explore the lessons she's learned on this journey and help you understand how Jsonnet can enable you to manage your Helm charts (or configuration) declaratively. -Food Will be provided by Instana -Parking TBD -Location TBD -Contact Caryn Ligon[masked] Daria Ilic[masked] Code of Conduct for Women Who Code Events WWCode is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers.
