Kubernetes solved a lot of problems, but it created a clumsy development workflow: Every code change requires fiddling with containers, registries, and manifests. Managing config files isn't trivial. Distributed debugging; a mystery. Dev clusters are tricky to set up, and sharing cluster state among team-members is mostly fiction.
L Körbes, an expert in Kubernetes development tooling, outlines successful development workflows in three different settings: a very large enterprise, a small and agile startup, and a popular open source project.
L will share how they set up dev clusters, manage configs, automate the development feedback loop, share context across teams, debug, and, finally, deploy to production.
Come learn how these teams made their Kubernetes dev workflows not only seamless, but amazing to use!
L Körbes does DevRel at Tilt. Having worked at both Garden and Tilt—two of the very few companies 100% focused on the development experience side of Kubernetes—L is immersed in developer-facing issues, and constantly working to solve them. They first got acquainted with Kubernetes while writing code for kubectl, in a SIG CLI internship. They've spoken about Kubernetes and Go at world-famous events, and at countless local meet-ups. L is a proud recipient of a 'Best Hair' award.
