Kubernetes Track: The evolution of the Kubernetes Model

Monday, February 6, 16:20 - B4.039

Kubernetes is a container management application brought to you by Google in 2014. At Canonical we have created three different models Kubernetes so far. We will talk about what the model looks like now, what we learned and how far we have to go.

Logical models enable humans to understand how software connects and relates to other applications. When companies make the decision to "build or buy" software, they almost always do the operations in house. Great operations knowledge is scarce, and often tied to the environment where it was created, which makes it harder to share. We need to share the operations knowledge as easily as we share open source software.

  • Matt wants to live in a world of robust software that handle the chaotic world in stride. Not sure if he is contributing to the singularity or preventing it.
  • As a software engineer he has worked for IBM and Canonical on their cloud and container products. He is currently modeling Kubernetes clusters.
  • When he is not working, you can find Matt working on hardware and software projects at the Rabbit Hole makerspace.
