Lightning Talk: Behind The Scenes: Kubernetes Release Notes Tips & Tricks - Mike Arpaia, Kolide
This session aims to shed more light on the release note process from the Kubernetes contributor's point of view. We will briefly discuss the entire release note process from PR to release day. We will pay special attention to the labels and prow commands that contributors can (and should!) use to add context to PRs so that the release note automation can most effectively sort and prepare the document. Finally, we will discuss some common copy-editing tips and tricks that you can use to make sure the final document is consistent and helpful for end-users (spoiler: write your note in the past tense!).

Lightning Talk: The Future of Humans in a World of Automation - Kendall Miller, ReactiveOps
The cloud providers have built service after service in an attempt to automate away the need for ops professionals. So where is the future for people in ops? Is there a future or should the engineers who are building tools for engineers get out now?

This will be a fast paced discussion about the places where people are still needed, and an argument for why people will always be needed, even if in less numbers than before.

Yes, the world is bleak and terrifying. Yes, AWS is literally out to remove the need for you on this planet. But there is still hope.... (And I'm not talking about a future where ops people are paid $500/hr like COBOL devs are because they've become so rare...)

Lightning Talk: Kubernetes Community, A Story Told by Emojis and Slack Data - Paris Pittman, Google
As of August 2018, the Kubernetes slack community has almost 45,000 members. With well over 170 channels to choose from, contributors and users alike, can converse with each other on a wide range of topics. By analyzing these channel topics alone could get us a 'whats trending in Kubernetes without the noise from other platforms -- so what other data do we have and what pictures can we paint?

During this talk, Paris will use past and current Slack data to tell interesting stories -- including emoji usage! Emojis can measure reactions in ways that words on a screen can't. She will even slip in a few slack admin antidotes on running an instance this large.
