ABSTRACTS:

"Logging, metrics, ingress on k3d under 5 minutes ..with gitops"
by Lazslo Fogas.

On this virtual meetup you will see how to install Grafana, Loki, Prometheus and Nginx on k3d, all configuration backed by a git repo. And the best thing: it's a speed run.

Laszlo tries to beat the speed run world record of Super Mario Bros, which is 4:55.646, only that he is installing Kubernetes components.
Then he explains how he is using the Helm Operator, Flux in the background, and what are his plans for https://t.co/vkVkmcAWz8

P.S.: the world record https://t.co/d9um1710Kf

"How to replace your engines mid-flight while maintaining a steady cruising altitude, or: how I learned to stop worrying and love Flatcar Container Linux"
by Salvatore Mazzarino & Andrew Randall.

Installing Linux on a new PC isn’t that hard, right? How about replacing the operating system across a fleet of thousands of virtual machines across multiple clouds and on-premises installations, with major global enterprise customers relying on you to keep their infrastructure running 24x7?

This was the challenge that faced Giant Swarm as they realized CoreOS Container Linux, on which their managed Kubernetes service was based, had been declared end of life — and decided to migrate to Flatcar Container Linux, with the help of Kinvolk. In this talk, we will explain the process Giant Swarm followed to decide on their migration strategy, the challenges of implementing it, and the lessons learned from the process.

SPEAKERS

Hi, I'm Laszlo (@laszlocph). I made https://t.co/vkVkmcAWz8 to have a baseline setup for infrastructure components on every Kubernetes cluster. It's a free tool to install the common tooling, with good default metrics, dashboards and features.
