Knative: Building serverless experiences on top of Kubernetes

You’re following DevOps or SRE best practices, perhaps even with containers and Kubernetes. You might even have implemented Istio! But are you exposing this system to your programmers? Wouldn’t they rather just write code, and have the system figure it out for them?
Knative is a platform for allowing just that. In this talk, Craig will tell you about the Knative platform and its three primary components — build, serving and events — and how you can offer serverless experiences to your users, but on top of all those servers you still love.

SLI System’s Lessons on Google Cloud Platform

Join us as we take you on a voyage of discovery as we attempt to recreate our resource hungry bare metal applications as a collection of Kubernetes microservices.
From initial prototypes to developing complete cluster deployment strategies, we’ll discuss the challenges we faced, the mistakes we made and how far we’ve come.
