Contain Your Excitement: The Kubernetes Ingress Controller

Contain your excitement: the Kubernetes Ingress Controller.

An overview of Kubernetes, container history, and Ingress Services. The issues with the Ingress Spec, and what NGINX are doing to solve them.

In this presentation, we will talk about the history of containers, how Docker became the defacto standard for Application packaging, and how Kubernetes beat Docker to become the orchestration king. Then we'll delve into the Ingress Specification, and what NGINX are doing to work around its shortcomings. We'll finish with a live demo of NGINX Ingress Controller in action.

DevOps and Microservices Better Together

We all want to get out of the rot of traditional SDLC, waterfall, big ball of mud… We want to be faster, more flexible, providing more value upfront, WINNING 🙂, have short feedback loops, be able to work in small cross-functional teams.To do that we want to be able to do continues delivery and continues deployment which leads us to what is described in the DevOps handbook...

To do that: You should be able to reliably (tested, secure….) deploy small units of work to production (reduce the risk in deploying new code to production (roll forward, blue-green )). Have many teams work in parallel autonomously across the system functions (business). Decrease lead time of features and bug fixes to production.

This is all well and good but when we try to get there we keep getting pulled back by our architecture.

When we look at successful DevOps transformations we see that architecture is one of the significant factors of success.

In this talk, we will cover Identifying boundaries, monolith decomposition and bounded contexts and how we can build better microservices so our DevOps will be a win.
