Keynote: Service Meshes and Observability - Ben Sigelman, Co-founder & CEO, Lightstep

Service mesh technology facilitates the discovery, interconnection, and authentication of microservices. While it’s straightforward to use a service mesh to measure peer performance, actually explaining the behavior of transactions in a microservices deployment requires distributed tracing.

In this keynote, Ben will explain why distributed tracing is important, where the service mesh comes into play, and how OpenTracing makes it all elegant and portable. We will illustrate these concepts with a live, audience-interactive demo, and provide guidance for those who want to add these technologies to their own microservice deployments.

Keynote: Kubernetes: This Job is Too Hard: Building New Tools, Patterns and Paradigms to Democratize Distributed System Development - Brendan Burns, Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft

The simple truth is that there are more reliable online systems that need to be built then there are people who know how to build them. Building a distributed system is bespoke, manual and hard.

Fortunately, with the development of containers and Kubernetes, a foundation has been created for a new type of development environment to make building systems dramatically easier and more modular. But containers and Kubernetes, while necessary, are not sufficient. In this talk I introduce Metaparticle, a new standard library for easy distributed systems development on Kubernetes.

Metaparticle uses familiar, standard programming languages to enable developers and architects to design, develop and deploy their application from a single, easy to use environment.

Keynote: Red Hat: Making Containers Boring (again) - Clayton Coleman, Architect, Kubernetes and OpenShift, Red Hat

By ensuring everything about containers is standardized and boring, we can now focus on the overall Kubernetes experience when it comes to actually running containers. Freeing Kubernetes to just focus on orchestrating containers from now on and setting the stage for exponential growth. We'll take a brief look at how Kubernetes is prepared to explode in usage because the foundation has been solidified. From container standards to customer-resource definitions to pluggable hardware, Kubernetes is ready for broad usage patterns.

Keynote: Pushing the Limits of Kubernetes with Game of Thrones - Zihao Yu & Illya Chekrygin, HBO
Do you want to know what it is like to run 15,000 pods in production? Are you interested in seeing how Kubernetes stands up to the record-breaking viewership and a login rate that is beyond belief on Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere? Come and see things we have done for the Game of Thrones preparation. We will talk about how we provision Kubernetes clusters on AWS, and how we monitor them and microservices that are running on the clusters.

In this talk, we will also go over how HBO Go went from deploying and running microservices on virtual machines in AWS EC2 to running the very same services inside the Kubernetes clusters. We were able to dramatically increase the productivity of our engineering teams and efficiency of resource utilization in the process. It wasn’t always a smooth ride and it wasn’t a one shot deal. Instead, it was a long and at times challenging journey starting from operating a reliable, production-ready Kubernetes cluster in AWS, advancing to gradually deploying select services into Kubernetes clusters, load testing them, and running them in parallel to our current EC2 installations, and finally going live. Come and learn some helpful tips and mistakes we made along the way, which could help your organization embrace the Kubernetes world.

Keynote: The Road Ahead on the Kubernetes Journey - Craig McLuckie, CEO, Heptio

It has been amazing to watch Kubernetes emerge as a standard operating environment for distributed systems development over the past few years. In a short few years it has become embraced by almost every significant vendor in the ecosystem and is going from strength to strength. It is emerging not only as a way to not only solve hard problems deploying and running applications, but is supporting the development of new approaches to building and running applications that power the world.  

 During this session, Craig McLuckie, one of the Kubernetes founders and CEO of Heptio will look ahead to the coming years and talk about some important trends in the ecosystem that will continue to support and drive the success of the project. We will focus on the emergence of expert operations and talk about how Kubernetes is starting to change the organizations that build and manage distributed systems. This will touch on how SRE values are starting to find their way into modern development teams, what tools are still needed to drive ops maturity and the overall value of this trend to companies adopting cloud native technologies. We will discuss the value of continued focus on modularity and extensibility in the cloud native ecosystem as a way to foster innovation in the ecosystem, and also discuss the the emerging role Kubernetes is playing in the increasingly heterogeneous world of cloud.

Keynote: Manage the App on Kubernetes - Brandon Philips, CTO, CoreOS

Kubernetes has yet to close the developer gap from source code to app running in a production Kubernetes cluster. Many build bespoke tools. How can the Kubernetes community come together to build decomposable solutions that help people define their app, deploy it, and manage its lifecycle over time? Learn about the progress we are making together to elevate the conversation from container orchestration to application lifecycles management.

Keynote: What is Kubernetes? - Brian Grant, Principal Engineer, Google

Kubernetes has been described many different ways. How should one think about the platform? It partly depends on the problems you are trying to solve with it. I will discuss 10 ways to view Kubernetes based on use cases, how those uses relate to its features and architecture, how Kubernetes supports the features, and how the architecture is evolving to support them better.
