Join end users, developers, students and other community members to learn from experts at Red Hat, Apprenda, and CNCF on how to use Kubernetes and other cloud native technologies in production.

By the end of this training, attendees will understand how cloud users are implementing cloud native computing — orchestrated containers as part of a microservices architecture – instead of virtual machines. Real-world Kubernetes use cases at Amadeus, LeShop, Produban/Santander, and FICO will be presented. A detailed walk through of Prometheus (monitoring system), OpenTracing (tracing standard) and Fluentd (logging) projects and each level of the stack will also be provided.

3:00PM – 5:00PM – Training Program

Dan Kohn, Executive Director, Cloud Native Computing Foundation
-What is cloud native computing — orchestrated containers as part of a microservices architecture — and why are so many cloud users moving to it instead of virtual machines
-An overview of the CNCF projects — Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing and Fluentd — and how we as a communuty are building maps through previously uncharted territory
-A discussion of top resources for learning more, including Kubernetes the Hard Way, Kubernetes bootcamp, and CloudNativeCon/KubeCon and training and certification opportunities

Brian Gracely, Director of Product Strategy, Red Hat
-Real-world use of Kubernetes in production today at Amadeus, LeShop, Produban/Santander & FICO
-Why contributing to CNCF-hosted projects should matter to you
-How cross-community collaboration is the key to the success of the future of Cloud Native

Isaac Arias, CTO, Apprenda
-Brief history of machine abstractions: from VMs to Containers
-Why containers are not enough: the case for container orchestration
-From Borg to Kubernetes: the power of declarative orchestration
