Cloud-native developers today have to decide between 3 separate container platforms.  Some choose the flexibility of containers with Kubernetes, others the velocity of an opinionated platform like CloudFoundry, and still others believe the future is all about serverless functions.  How do you know which ones to use? And should you have to choose?  In this keynote, Jason McGee will share his vision for the marriage of containers, apps, and functions -- driven by Kubernetes, Istio and the emergence of Knative into a single combined container platform.  It’s time to break down the silos and see how these projects’ paths are converging to solve real microservice dilemmas: security, scale, and operations.
