Keynote: 5 Years of etcd: Past, Present, and Future - Brandon Philips, CTO CoreOS, Red Hat & Xiang Li, Senior Staff Software Engineer, Alibaba
In July 2013 the etcd project was announced to solve a critical problem for CoreOS: how to safely coordinate unattended automatic software updates across a cluster of Linux nodes. Today hundreds of companies use etcd as part of their production systems to hold critical data for their Kubernetes clusters, network systems, monitoring systems, and much more.
 
 But, how did etcd evolve into a critical system in the Cloud Native ecosystem?
 
This talk will cover the 5-year history of etcd from the stumbles, use cases, and technical evolution. We will also dive into the trade-offs that were made as the system went from theoretical prototype to a production ready workhorse. And touch on where the project is going as it moves into the CNCF.
 
There is no expectation of prior knowledge of etcd or how it works. The ideal audience member has a love for distributed systems, and operations.

Keynote: Kubernetes, Istio, Knative: The New Open Cloud Stack - Aparna Sinha, Group Product Manager for Kubernetes, Google
Kubernetes has succeeded in its initial mission. Launched by Google as an open source platform built on the foundations of Borg, Kubernetes has grown into an enterprise platform, with a strong community and adoption across all major industries. But Kubernetes is not meant to merely run on multiple clouds, it is meant to be a complete cloud that shields users from the underlying infrastructure, while providing developers a secure, efficient, productive experience for developing and operating any app. During this presentation, we describe the full-stack vision of a Kubernetes-native cloud. One that spans on-prem and cloud providers, serves all types of applications and provides a serverless developer experience. We demonstrate the vision with a stack that mirrors closely what Google has built internally and now open sourced to the Kubernetes ecosystem.

Keynote: The Unification of Containers, Apps and Functions - Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO, IBM Cloud Platform, IBM
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.

Keynote: Developing Kubernetes Services at Airbnb Scale - Melanie Cebula, Software Engineer, Airbnb
You've already made the plunge to move to Kubernetes, and you feel pretty good about that. But why does it feel like it requires expert-level Kubernetes knowledge for engineers to get anything done? This talk will identify key problems that make out-of-the-box Kubernetes less friendly to developers, and strategies for addressing them, based on Airbnb’s experience empowering one thousand engineers to develop hundreds of Kubernetes services at scale.
 
 This talk will focus primarily on four problem areas:
 
 1. Configuration: Generated and templated configuration, extracting shareable components and containers
 
 2. CI/CD: Containerizing CI/CD, multi-stage builds, deploy strategies
 
 3. Service lifecycle: Primary and sidecar containers, Advanced pod readiness, warmup, graceful termination, etc
 
 4. Tooling: Creating and Distributing a kubectl wrapper

Keynote: Smooth Operator♪: Large Scale Automated Storage with Kubernetes - Celina Ward, Software Engineer & Matt Schallert, Site Reliability Engineer, Uber
Managing stateful applications is tough. While Kubernetes excels in automated application management, more often than not, the state of these applications live outside of Kubernetes. What happens when users develop complex stateful software but still want to benefit from the automation and portability that Kubernetes provides?
 
 In this talk, Celina and Matt share their experience creating an operator for a unique stateful workload: a sharded, replicated, multi-zone time-series database. They discuss the major shift in thought -- from the mental model of a 1:1 process/node relationship, to one far more adaptive to both machine and user behavior.
 
 The audience will walk away with a framework for expressing their stateful workloads using Kubernetes primitives, and advice for navigating the difficult process of codifying innovative abstract ideas without over-engineering solutions.

We are at the “third era of Kubernetes.” Users learned about containers and orchestration all around the day one of operations. Now we well understand the operations needs from day two and beyond. Next, it is about solving the problems around the entire lifecycle of a Kubernetes application. Using an Operator and the Operator Lifecycle Manager, learn how the build, testing, install, upgrades, and access controls can help you prep your Kubernetes infrastructure for resilience.
