KubeCon North America is coming up soon! It will take place virtually November 17th-20th.
The schedule is chock-full of very interesting talks,from introductory overviews to advanced deep dives. When I first saw it, I ended up copying down as many talks as possible to share here because they are all just so good. But I figured I should probably curate a bit, so below you will find a list of my top recommendations, broken down, for the most part, by their respective Special Interest Group (SIG) names.
Talks with a 🌱 next to them are introductory/deep dive talks, and each SIG section header links to its respective SIG page.
If you can, definitely watch all of the keynotes. There is a complimentary pass just for the keynotes if you’re unable to attend the rest of the conference.
If you’re interested in seeing what cool things different companies are working on and/or are interested in, check out the sponsored sessions on Day 1.
This is an interactive session that will teach you how Admission Controllers play a critical role in securing Kubernetes APIs. You will be able to “implement basic input validation and testing of webhooks for the Admission Controller.”
This talk covers different types of autoscaling, how they work, and why you should use them. Best practices and gotchas will also be discussed.
This talk dives into logging for distributed systems, specifically for Kubernetes environments, best practices, and available open-source tools.
In order to operate Kubernetes at the Edge, a container registry is required. This is where Harbor comes in.
This talk goes into detail about Project Harbor, a container registry, and its roadmap.
This talk will be a combined intro to and deep dive into containerd, a container runtime.
In this talk, there will be an overview of current projects and future technologies that fall into the SIG-Runtime scope.
This talk will give an intro to Open Policy Agent (OPA), which provides policy-based control for cloud native environments. To see an instance of how OPA has been used, scroll down to Day 4.
This talk will provide an intro to and tutorial of Falco, a runtime security tool designed to detect anomalous activity and security breaches.
This talk will be about SIG-Security efforts and projects.
“Starboard is an open source project that gathers security information from various different tools into Kubernetes CRDs, so users can manage & access security reports through familiar Kubernetes interfaces, like kubectl or Octant.” This talk will include multiple demos.
This talk will cover concrete examples of how VMware has used Open Policy Agent (OPA) to implement evolving Kubernetes policy requirements and more.
This talk will focus on Kubernetes end users and how Kubernetes can help.
This talk will go into a number of very useful Kubernetes-related CLIs.
When talking about containers, people often think about Linux. This talk will instead dive into Windows and Kubernetes.
