Show Overview:
Brian and Tyler talk some of the basics, lessons learned and other things people could use to “fast-track” what they need to be successful with Kubernetes.
 
Show Notes:

Show Premise:
Kubernetes community now has 10 releases (2.5yrs) of software and experience. We just finished KubeCon and Red Hat Summit and we heard lots of companies talk about their deployments and journeys. But many of them took a while (12-18) months to get to where they are today. This feels like the “early adopters” and we’re beginning to get to the “crossing the chasm” part of the market. So thought we’d discuss some of the basics, lessons learned and other things people could use to “fast-track” what they need to be successful with Kubernetes.
 
Topic 1 - What are the core skills needed for a team that manages/runs/interacts with a Kubernetes environment?

  • Ops Skills 
  • Dev Skills 
  • Compliance Skills / Security Skills

Topic 2 - What has significantly changed in the Kubernetes world since 2015/16 to today that people should consider taking advantage of?

  • Persistence 
  • Immutability 
  • Operators 
  • Native tools vs. Config Mgmt tools 
  • Storage

Topic 3 - What do you consider “still hard” and should probably justify more early effort?

  • Security? 
  • Storage? 
  • Monitoring? 
  • Being overly precise about capacity planning?

Topic 4 - What patterns have you seen from successful deployments and customer behaviors?
 
Feedback?
