talkBuilding a Kubernetes distro the easy way

In a world where all you want to run is containers and Kubernetes will be your abstraction point to infrastructure. What is the bare minimum you need to Kubernetes? How can you cut the operational overhead of the OS? In this talk, we will build a Kubernetes distro live from scratch !!! That will work locally or in the cloud and look at how you can run Kubernetes in a leaner, more secure OS with less operational overhead. We will walk through the journey and learnings we experienced and show you how to build the image with Docker as the runtime and then with cri containerd talking about the pros and cons of both approaches.

workshopDocker Orchestration

Deployment and orchestration at scale. Docker Captain Scott Coulton walks you through taking an application from development to production with Docker. You’ll run a sample app on a single node with Compose and add scaling and load balancing before provisioning a cluster of Docker nodes and deploying the application on that cluster. Scott also demonstrates how to perform Ops tasks and explores options for high availability.
