Feedback form is now closed.
As a new or experienced user of Kubernetes, you’ve likely heard someone say something similar to “Kubernetes will make things so much better for your developers!” In this talk, we will examine why Kubernetes is not a developer tool and cut through other common misconceptions. Along the way, we’ll learn how Kubernetes provides powerful abstractions for running and operating applications.

Luckily for us, there are many options for leveraging the abstractions Kubernetes provides to create a better developer experience. Drawing on real-life experience with Kubernetes at three large corporations, we will work through practical examples of using Helm, Draft, custom controllers, and other Kubernetes tools to build example platforms for empowering developers.
