Teams are leveraging Kubernetes (and other container based technologies) to improve the speed at which they ship and deploy applications, however, Kubernetes still largely focuses on solving these problems through infrastructure concepts. As technology teams, we've always kept the process of deploying applications, and releasing new versions to users, closely tied to the infrastructure deployment steps. LaunchDarkly allows users to break that connection apart, separating the deployment of application code (to infrastructure) from the release of software features. In this session, attendees will deep dive on exploring this concept and learn how LaunchDarkly fills the gap in user consumption by exploring concepts like canary rollouts and user targeting - allowing application teams to have greater control over which users and teams are consuming new features - and how to back them out when something goes wrong.
Senior Technical Marketing Engineer @LaunchDarkly
Peter is a Sr. Technical Marketing Engineer at LaunchDarkly that came to the DevOps world accidentally on purpose. After a start in the wireless and cellular space, Peter pivoted to a marketing career focusing on infrastructure automation, service networking, and application delivery. Along the way, he picked up a passion for building content and just enough coding knowledge to hide the duct tape and string that often holds his demos together. Now he creates technical materials designed to help users understand both how products work and the value they can bring to an organization.
Outside of work, Peter often spends his weekends hiking, camping, and just generally exploring up in the mountains of Colorado with his wife Hannah and cattle dog Margot
