Session Name: From Kubernetes to Paas To... Err, What’s Next?
Developers building applications on Kubernetes today are being asked to not just code applications -- they are also responsible for shipping and running their applications, too. We often talk about needing a Kubernetes platform, but are we really looking for a PaaS? Or instead, are we looking for some kind of developer control plane with a Goldilock-sized collection of tools that provides just the right amount of platform? This talk will look back on my experience of building platforms, both as an end-user and now as part of an organization helping our customers do the same. We’ll wrap this talk with a walk-through of the CNCF ecosystem through the developer control plane lens, and look at what’s next in the future of this important emerging category.
