CustomResourceDefinitions (CRDs) are a cornerstone of many extensions built on-top of Kubernetes. They allow to define custom API objects and the API server will handle their life-cycle.

Most APIs start with one version, but sooner or later need to evolve while keeping compatibility with current clients/users. Kubernetes standard types do that through versioning and conversion between versions. This talk covers the corresponding evolution path for CRD based APIs.

The talk will cover:
- Why Kubernetes has multiple versions
- New feature: CRD Versioning with Conversion
- Round-Tripability Concept
- How to update schemaless API objects to schemaful
- Pruning and how to enable it
- Defaulting
- How to plan for Master Rollbacks when writing a CRD
- Storage version and storage migration
- Failure modes
- Monitoring and managing a cluster with multi-versions
- Kube builder support and Demo
