The Operationalizing Kubernetes Virtual Summit will bring together Kubernetes and cloud-native community members for a unique learning experience focused on the tools and best practices you need in order to successfully secure and manage Kubernetes. Presented in a virtual reality environment, the event will take place on Oct. 1, at 10 a.m. EDT.
The Operationalizing Kubernetes Virtual Summit is a free, interactive virtual conference featuring a stellar lineup of Kubernetes and cloud-native experts, including keynote speakers James Strachan, Liz Rice, Priyanka Sharma and Tim Hockin.
James Strachan, distinguished engineer at CloudBees, is one of the four brilliant keynote speakers presenting at the virtual event. James is co-founder of Jenkins X, an open source project that helps developers automate their CI/CD processes for cloud native applications. James is also the creator of the Apache Groovy programming language and the Apache Camel integration framework.
In his keynote session “Using Jenkins, Jenkins X and Tekton with GitOps,” James will demonstrate how Jenkins, Jenkins X and Tekton can solve all of your cloud-native CI/CD requirements using a simple GitOps approach that is easy to set up, use and manage from Git.
AWS Container Hero, Liz Rice, will also make an appearance at the virtual conference as keynote speaker. Liz is vice president of open source engineering at Aqua Security, where she works on container-related open source projects, and she’s also chair of the CNCF’s Technical Oversight Committee.
The author of “Container Security: Fundamental Technology Concepts that Protect Containerized Applications” will review what you do and don’t need to worry about when running your cloud native applications during her session, “The State of Kubernetes Security.”
Another CNCF member joining as keynote speaker is Priyanka Sharma, general manager at CNCF. Priyanka was previously the director of Cloud Native Alliances at GitLab, where she built the developer evangelism team that participates regularly in the cloud native community. Priyanka has contributed to several CNCF projects such as Jaeger and Vitess and was a founding team member of the OpenTracing standard.
During her talk, “What 6.5 Million Developers Have in Common: Kubernetes,” Priyanka will share some interesting findings from research done by CNCF on the cloud-native ecosystem and will also discuss Kubernetes and cloud-native trends and best practices.
Last but not least, Tim Hockin, principal software engineer at Google, will be interviewed for the keynote session “Operationalizing Kubernetes: Interview with Tim Hockin.” Tim works on the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and is co-founder of the Kubernetes project. He has also worked on Google’s Borg and Omega projects as well as the Linux Kernel.
As Kubernetes keeps gaining traction in mainstream IT environments, the next big challenge IT teams will face is operationalizing the platform at scale. But, is the Kubernetes ecosystem mature enough to operationalize at scale? Attend Tim’s keynote session to find out.
Join this interactive, multi-track virtual conference and learn how thought leaders are embracing containers and microservices environments, leveraging cloud native technologies and enabling digital transformation with Kubernetes.
