How to make the most of Kubernetes as a developer

Kubernetes and cloud native applications are becoming a huge topic.

We'll talk about the advantages of K8S to set the context for attendees, but we're going to focus on specific, actionable steps app developers and software engineers should take to make the most of Kubernetes.

Will include as much live code as time permits!

We're going to talk about:

  • what changes to consider in your app architecture to make the most of K8S
  • general containerization considerations for K8S
  • mapping 12 Factor concepts to K8S
  • what additional frameworks app devs should consider
  • specific details like logging
  • exposing the right health and readiness endpoints
  • how to wire up other services and data storage
  • considerations for legacy apps
  • a discussion of resources at the Cloud Native Foundation
  • and much more.

Bonus: will hand out a checklist of considerations for app developers going cloud native on K8S

You'll walk away with a clear understanding of why K8S is so useful for your application and how to actually take advantage of it.

Note: the presenter is Michael Rice, Field Engineer Manager for Cloud Native Apps at VMware, but this presentation will focus on open source K8S and tooling.
