Kubernetes Edinburgh July 2019


Welcome to the first Kubernetes Edinburgh Meetup! This edition will be sponsored by Mesosphere and with thanks to Codebase for hosting us.

We'll kick things off with two speakers, and the running order will be approximately as follows:

6:30pm - Welcome, food and drink sponsored by Mesosphere

7:00pm - Getting started with Kubernetes - John Pikoulas, Automated IT Solutions

"An overview of the main Kubernetes concepts and components, then a run-through of building your own local Kubernetes Cluster with Minikube.

This session should be suitable for anyone interested in starting or exploring Kubernetes and Helm. We will provide details to get you up and running with Kubernetes, Helm and Minikube on Linux and Mac platforms."

7:45pm - Introducing KUDO, Kubernetes Operators the easy way - Matt Jarvis, Senior Director of Community and Evangelism at Mesosphere

"Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. The KUDO project introduces an easy way to build Kubernetes operators using declarative YAML. Many Operators that exist today handle initial deployment, but they don’t provide automation for tasks like binary upgrades, configuration updates, and failure recovery. Implementing a production-grade controller for a complex workload typically requires thousands of lines of code and many months of development. As a result, the quality of operators that are available today varies. The KUDO project provides a universal operator to enable automated creation of operators for Kubernetes, in most cases just using YAML. In this talk, I’ll introduce the KUDO project, and demo the creation of a Kubernetes operator using KUDO."

8:30pm - Wrap-up
