Abstract

We've been in the operations and development game for years; it has made us animals. We've learned there are rules for success, so we created a manual. This is a step-by-step checklist to get your Kubernetes game on track. (and maybe your manager off your back?) 

In this session, Carlos and Bryan are going to share ideas that your teams can employ to make working Kubernetes less of a chore and more of a way of life. The topics of this session cover tips and hints ranging from bootstrapping your clusters, to managing custom workloads, to using the Kubernetes API as your applications' API. These ideas will be paralleled with lessons we learned growing up in Hip Hop culture. 

This session has two goals. First, we'd like to introduce the canonical Kubernetes day 0, day 1, and day 2 experiences. We'll take those experiences and interlace them with real-world tips that can be employed by users of Kubernetes.

We'll be exploring topics from booting Kubernetes clusters to running complex workloads as a list of 10 items. If you'd like any more information (or our list of 10 topics), let me know.
