Session Name: DevOps Is Not What You Have Been Told It Is
We have gone a little crazy with such a simple term that means a lot. What started as a collaborative idea between devs and ops with Flicker in 2009, has evolved so much and now we have learned and include other verticals as well. There have been countless books, even before 2009. Today, new models such as Google SRE have been born too.
However, I still see companies asking for a DevOps, or having a DevOps team. Is that really a good approach or maybe a necessary evil? What is really DevOps now in 2020? Come to my talk and find out what DevOps means after 10 years of the first DevOpsDays in Ghent. I'll share a few funny horror stories. I've been fortunate to help several teams with training, coaching, and implementing a DevOps culture. Going from shipping software every two weeks, to just a few minutes, even under a fairly regulated environment.
In this session, I'll talk about Kubernetes from the developer perspective, specifically about the whole application life cycle of going from a local environment to deploying updates into a Kubernetes cluster in a production-like environment. A few of the tools I'll use for demo purposes will be Skaffold, Draft, Telepresence, Knative, and Helm. Stay tuned; I might also include how changes in the database fit into the Kubernetes workflow.
