  • 13:30 - 17:00Kubernetes on Amazon EKSSpeaker: Sascha Möllering

    Abstract:
    Running more than one containerized application in production makes teams look for solutions to quickly deploy and orchestrate containers. One of the most popular options is the open-source project Kubernetes. With the release of the Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), engineering teams now have access to a fully managed Kubernetes control plane and time to focus on building applications. This workshop will deliver hands-on labs to support you getting familiar with Amazon’s EKS.

  • 13:30 - 17:00Kubernetes AdvancedSpeaker: Tobias Bradtke

    Abstract:
    Kubernetes provides a set of more then thirty resource types out of the box and that alone might look overwhelming for a beginner. Still these gain new features with each release and with the popularity of the operator pattern, more and more custom resources show up in our Kubernetes clusters. In this workshop we’ll focus on some more advanced topics, explain their background and how to use them to get a better overview and more confidence in the stability of a more complex Kubernetes setup.

  • 09:00 - 9:45SRE, DevOps, Google and You Speaker: Björn Rabenstein - SoundCloud

    Abstract:
    Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) was originally conceived internally at Google. By now, it has become public knowledge via various channels like conferences or books. But how can you apply SRE principles in your organization, given that you are not Google and cannot just blindly do everything exactly as Google does? And how does SRE relate to DevOps? The speaker has seen both sides, with many years working as an SRE at Google and later as a Production Engineer at SoundCloud, a much smaller startup running many service using a highly innovative tech stack and a radical DevOps approach. Let’s dive into questions of culture and scale and come up with some helpful pointers how you can learn from the giant without losing your own way.
