KubeCon EU 2016: Pearson, NYT, Google and More Talk Kubernetes

By Atos Apprenda Support

KubeCon EU 2016

Kubernetes, the powerful open-source container orchestration system designed using a decade of Google research and development, has a ton of momentum. We saw this first hand recently at KubeCon, the largest Kubernetes-focused conference, which Apprenda sponsored and spoke at.

Additionally, we’re also hosting more than 40 videos from the conference itself. Now that all of the presentations are live, we wanted to spotlight a few of the great talks. (To be fair, all of them are great — these are only a few highlights.)

Check them out below.

Kelsey Hightower, Google, “Day 1 Opening Keynote”

This talk discusses the broad themes of Kubernetes, where things stand today, and where they are heading.

Brandon Philips, CoreOS, “Day 2 Opening Keynote”

This talk discusses the major community efforts made in recent months to deliver this goal and the work we need to do to continue our momentum.

Michael Ward, Pearson, “If This Now What: Orchestrating an Enterprise”

With over 400 development teams across many different business units, Pearson had to move away from massive installs of traditional build pipeline tools and rethink the entire concept. In this talk, Ward demonstrates how Pearson has built in security compliance, performance testing, quality assurance, reduced overhead, aimed to recover 10% of developers time and turned build tools into cattle.

Eric Lewis, The New York Times, “Kubernetes in Production in The New York Times Newsroom”

Kubernetes offers The New York Times an infrastructure for our numerous applications at scale. Leveraging the Kubernetes API, the Times has built a self-service admin interface for developers (not sysadmins) to configure and launch their applications at scale, similar to the Kubernetes Dashboard project, tailored to its development workflow.

Ivan Pedrazas, United Kingdom Government, “Transforming the Government”

This talk documents the UK Home Office’s cloud-native journey, changing how it has traditionally done DevOps.
