Kubernetes: A Cautionary Tale

by Joshua Sheppard | 9:25 – 10:10 in Minnetonka | View Schedule

The gap between Minikube and Kubernetes in production is vast and full of pain. Want to know what it's like to implement Kubernetes in production for the first time before you collect the bumps and bruises yourself? Join me to learn about the ups and downs of one company's initial experience - including who was involved, the scope, and what was intentionally deferred.

We will cover:

  • Why even consider Kubernetes (Hint: you might not benefit from it!)
  • How a real company approached their first proof-of-concept
  • How goals changed during implementation of k8s
  • What we learned so far
  • What we still need to learn

He cut his teeth on regular expressions in Perl for a meta search engine and had the misfortune of porting those to Java in 2001. Lately he's happy to be building a data science team, writing Python, and exploring the benefits and challenges of container orchestration with Kubernetes.
