For most people outside IT departments, understanding how to pronounce Kubernetes is the first step of many steps towards understanding why they should support the transition to Cloud-Native Technologies. This talk seeks to present Kubernetes and cloud-native to non-coders outside the IT department and help them understand how supporting its adoption will benefit them.
The talk begins with an overview of what Cloud-Native is, proceeds to a non-technical explanation of Kubernetes using housing as a metaphor, and finishes with key benefits to non-IT departments when adopting Kubernetes. Audience members will learn how to explain and advocate for Kubernetes at an organisational level.
