Containing the Future...
Since its initial announcement by Google in 2014, Kubernetes has become a foundational technology for the growing field of containerisation and microservices. Kubernetes is also central to the future evolution of this space, so we are very pleased to announce that Craig McLuckie (one of the founders of Kubernetes) will be the keynote speaker at the October LNETM.
Craig will discuss the origin of Kubernetes from Google's Borg, the growth of the technology, the creation of Heptio and their subsequent acquisition by VMware. In addition, he will give his perspective on the future for the technology and microservices more generally. The fireside chat with Craig will be moderated by Steven Verze (Enterprise Cloud Architect at London Stock Exchange Group).
Demo presentations on the evening will include:
Jetstack is fast-growing Kubernetes professional services company that builds modern,cloud-native infrastructure using Kubernetes and prides itself with helping startups and enterprises alike in their path to these next generation technologies.
