Session Name: Closing the Developer Experience Gap of Kubernetes Development
Kubernetes have solved many challenges that businesses face today when it comes to flexibility, scaling & reliability of the release of new versions. But it also posed additional challenges for developers by introducing operational complexity into their dev workflow. To address this challenge, developers typically adopt either the local or remote development approach. Local development offers a fast inner dev loop & allows the usage of local development & debugging tools. But as you scale, your local machine becomes too small to continue running the app. Remote development offers more resources & a realistic development environment for testing purposes. However, you'd always have to repeat the slow build, push, & test cycle before seeing the impact of your code changes. This talk will show developers how they can enjoy the benefits of both development environments without having to deal with their cons. This way, they'll be able to close the developer experience gap of K8s development.
