- Network event62 attendees from 62 groups hostingKong Plugins Unleashed: A Tech Odyssey into API MasteryLink visible for attendees
Prepare to witness the powerhouse of the Kong ecosystem: Kong plugins - the turbochargers propelling the Kong ecosystem into hyperdrive, offering you unparalleled control over API gateway policies with plug-and-play ease.
In this session, we’re not just scratching the surface - we’re diving deep into the heart of Kong’s plugin architecture. Get ready to grasp the fundamentals of plugin development, testing methodologies that scream efficiency, and the art of automated delivery. You’ll gain insights into the different plugin phases during an API request, learn about unit testing, and discover how to seamlessly install a plugin in Kong Gateway.
But wait, there’s more! We’re not just talking theory here. I’ll also show you a live demo of crafting a custom plugin in Lua and slapping it onto Kong Gateway. Get ready to harness the true potential of Kong plugins!

Managing your Gateways on Kubernetes has historically been a very manual process, usually involving the use of Helm for operations like upgrades. At Kong we've been working on the Kong Gateway Operator (KGO) to revolutionize the experience of operating Gateways in production. Say goodbye to the cumbersome, manual processes of managing Gateways. Our operator transforms the configuration and lifecycle management experience, automating the tedious and complex operations that used to bog you down.
We've built the KGO with fundamental support for Gateway API (the Kubernetes upstream successor to the Ingress API) in order to reduce the need for users to extensively learn custom APIs to perform these operations, and to make it play nicely with your existing Gateway API manifests. In this webinar we will demonstrate some of the powerful capabilities of the KGO such as automated canary and blue/green rollout strategies and autoscaling.
The KGO is an open source project under the Apache 2.0 license and is freely available on Github: we invite attendees to join us for a demonstration and will show you how to deploy your own KGO locally on your laptop to try it out yourself.
