Session Name: Dealing with ConfigMaps for frictionless DevOps
ConfigMaps and Secrets in Kubernetes are an integral part of modern applications. They help to isolate the environmental specifications and make the applications portable. While ConfigMaps may appear simple to setup initially, they can become challenging when the real automation kicks in. ConfigMaps follow a different lifecycle compared to the applications and this may lead to disparate updates especially during Rolling Updates and Rollbacks. Similarly using configMaps in a non-root container needs additional considerations. This session discusses some common use cases, challenges and best practices of using ConfigMaps to achieve a frictionless DevOps.
