Kubernetes, Metadata and You [I] - Liz Rice, Aqua Security & Gareth Rushgrove, Puppet

The combination of CI/CD tools and Kubernetes means we can set up a pipeline for deploying code changes as they happen, triggering a container image build and a rolling update to pull the new image. But what about changes that are about the application and how it should run, rather than the code itself?

This talk will explore tools and approaches for managing application metadata alongside the application code. We will look at:

- The importance of metadata to managing modern Cloud Native systems
- Built-in metadata capabilities in Kubernetes like ConfigMaps, Annotations and Labels
- Ways of making a deployment self-describing as part of a CI/CD workflow
- Using metadata to make the life of Kubernetes operators easier
- Examples of open source tools (like Manifesto, Lumogon and Skopeo) which work with Kubernetes ecosystem metadata
