  • September Meetup - Hosted by NetApp

    NetApp

    Welcome to the September edition of the Bay Area Kubernetes Meetup! AGENDA: 5:30–6:00 Check-in & Enjoy Refreshments 6:00–6:05 Welcome 6:05–6:25 Talk 1: Cloud Native Spelunking, and the True Value of Platforms 6:25–6:35 Break 6:35 - 7:10 Talk 2: Kubernetes Ingress and Service Mesh Integration with Envoy Proxy Control Planes 7:10-7:30 Networking There will be two special talks presented by NetApp and Solo.io: ***Talk 1*** Speaker: Paul Burt, is a TPME working on Kubernetes at NetApp. He previously worked at CoreOS and Red Hat, and currently moderates /r/kubernetes. Paul has a knack for and demystifying infrastructure, and making gnarly, complex topics approachable. He enjoys home brewing beer, reading independent comics, and yelling at his computer when it doesn’t do what he wants. Presentation Title: Cloud Native Spelunking, and the True Value of Platforms About the talk: Remember those early days of the web, when we’d FTP somewhere and upload a few HTML files? Simple and easy. Now? We have to consider serverless, Kubernetes, and the morass of containers. How do we build apps now? Where do we store artifacts? Why have we collectively accepted this increase in complexity? In this talk we'll define the value of Cloud Native (and platforms). And, we'll share lessons we've learned as we've built NKS, a platform built on Kubernetes. ***Talk 2*** Speakers: Idit Levine, Founder and CEO and Scott Weiss, Principal Engineer from Solo.io Presentation title: Kubernetes Ingress and Service Mesh Integration with Envoy Proxy Control Planes About the talk: Kubernetes users need to allow traffic to flow into and within the cluster. Treating the application traffic separately from the business logic allows new possibilities in how service-to-service traffic is served, controlled, and observed. It also provides a transition to application networking architectures like Service Mesh. In this talk, Idit will show how Solo.io leveraged Envoy Proxy and Kubernetes to build and operationalize a multi-purpose control plane to provide ingress and gateway functionality and seamlessly integrate to service meshes like Istio. Demos included to show how Solo.io's Gloo and Service Mesh Hub work in Kubernetes and Istio environments. Join us to learn more.

  • January Kubernetes Bay Area Meetup

    Google Building MP3

    Welcome to the January edition of the Bay Area Kubernetes Meetup! ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: Joe Beda is a principle engineer at VMware. He was the co-founder and CTO of Heptio. Previously, at Google, Joe co-created Google Compute Engine and filed the first ever Kubernetes project commit. He is a strong advocate for open source and a frequent contributor to the community. Dennis Adjei-Baah is a software engineer at Buoyant Inc, where he contributes to and provides support for the open source project Linkerd, an L7 proxy that provides a dedicated service mesh layer in microservice environments. Prior to Buoyant Dennis was a software engineer at Ticketfly (acquired by Eventbrite). In his spare time, If he isn't making weird electronic music, you can find him enjoying all the wonderful things the Bay Area has to offer. ABSTRACTS: Dennis - Debugging microservices running in Kubernetes can be difficult when dealing with certain kinds of failures; for example, when services fail with request timeouts or HTTP 500 error responses. In this talk, we'll walk through a brief overview of Linkerd, a service mesh that provides out of the box observability for microservices in Kubernetes clusters. We’ll walk through some of Linkerd’s features and see how we can use its CLI and UI dashboard to troubleshoot these kinds of errors that are not easily visible from Kubernetes’s dashboard or API. Joe - The world of containers is moving to the next phase. We now have an evolving toolbox. The question is now what do we do with this new tool box? We need to think beyond just running containers and instead about how we use the patterns and primitives to automate all parts of application development and operations. In this talk, we will outline how Kubernetes was built to be built on and detail some of the innovative techniques and projects that are taking things to the next level. AGENDA: 6:00–6:30 Check-in 6:30–6:40 Welcome 6:40–7:10 Dennis Adjei-Baah, Linkerd 7:10–7:25 Break 7:25–7:55 Joe Beda, VMware 7:55–8:30 Networking MENU: Mediterranean Platter: spanakopita, butternut squash hummus, marinated olives, mint labneh, pita Turkey sliders with cranberry compote Samosas with tamarin chutney A very special thank you to Google for hosting & feeding us!
