  • Kubernetes: So What and What Else

    Location visible to members

    GDG New Orleans is a monthly meeting where developers can present on any topic related to technology and software development. This month's talk is: Kubernetes: So What and What Else The latest buzzword. You see it everywhere. What is it? Why all the hype? Kubernetes has certainly been the latest shiny object in software development and delivery lately. It certainly is an advancement in application packaging, deployment, operations, and application mobility, but it doesn't solve the entire application delivery problem. Join us to learn the basics of Kubernetes and its relationship to Docker Containers. Discover what all the hype is about and how it can help you delivery better applications. But beware, Kubernetes is not the entire solution. This month's talk is presented by: John Boudreaux, better known as Boosey (Boo-see), serves as the Chief Innovation Officer for Distribution Market, North America, for IBM. He has helped to develop and bring to market technologies and methodologies focusing on Application and Cognitive Computing Innovation Methodology. He works with clients to help them understand the process and technologies which every company can use to create solutions that are not just inventive, but achieve the desired business outcomes. Boosey has been on the leading edge of technology for his entire career beginning in the IBM Lab in 1987 where he worked on advanced technology that produced the first market successful visual development environment, and through the years has continued to be on the leading edge which now includes containerization, cognitive computing and artificial intelligence, cloud, Blockchain, and IoT. We look forward to seeing you at our event! If you're interested in giving a talk let us know.
