We will have two great talks:
18:15 – Talk #1
"Istio - when and why you should use it in your Kubernetes solution" [EN] by Piotr Kloskowski (SoftServe)

Kubernetes has fundamentally changed the way we approach application design and deployment patterns, but with this change comes a whole new set of challenges. Istio in conjunction with Kubernetes provides some of the missing components needed to successfully run and debug distributed applications in Kubernetes.
What is Istio? What does it really add to the Kubernetes party? What operational challenges does it actually address? Maybe it just adds more operational overhead without clear benefits for your solution? Do you really need it? These are some of the questions that we will try to answer in this talk.

“Knative - new hero in serverless world” [EN] by Błażej Kwaśniak (SoftServe)

Back in the day serverless seems to be next big thing in DevOps world which supposed to change our daily job forever. So far we can find couple of projects which aims to bring serverless capabilities into our Kubernetes clusters. Let’s try to dig into some of those solutions and find out how do they really works and what is the actual use case. After that we would try to answer the question, how Knative is different from each of them ? Finally let’s try to figure out if we really need serverless solutions on our PaaS.
