About this event

Join us for a special event with 2 container experts from Google exploring Kubernetes and Istio!

Doors open for drinks at 6:00pm, and talks will kickoff at 6:30pm. There'll also be pizza, and when the talks finish up there'll be more time for drinks and networking. Look forward to seeing you then!

Talk 1:
Craig Box (Kubernetes/Istio Advocacy Lead at Google Cloud) - "Kubernetes & Istio: the efficient approach to well-managed infrastructure"

Google's Kubernetes management system for container clusters has taken the IT world by storm. Learn how you can slash the time for you to get a change into production, and enable zero-downtime deployments. You'll see how Google Kubernetes Engine takes away the administrative burden of running infrastructure so your IT teams can spend their time innovating. You'll also get a taste for Istio, the new open system for securely managing networks of microservices.

Craig leads the Cloud Native advocacy team for Google Cloud. He presents the stories of our platforms to users, collects feedback on rough edges, and then works with the engineers until they are smoothed! Craig started his career as a systems administrator, and has worked in development, deployment, DevOps, consulting, advisory and management roles.

Talk 2:
Ian Lewis (Developer Advocate, Google Cloud) - "Kubernetes Security Best Practices"

Kubernetes has become the de-facto orchestration tool but it has some pitfalls to keep in mind with regard to security. How can we make containers more secure? How do we apply existing tools to our containers? How can we apply policy to containers so they only have access to what they need and nothing more? In this talk attendees will learn about specific security risks and see tools like PodSecurityPolicy, SELinux/AppArmor, and seccomp in action to mitigate those risks. Then we’ll go up the stack and learn how to apply network policy to containers and further improve security.

Ian has had various developer and operations roles throughout his career and enjoys working in environments with diverse ways of thinking. Ian has been living in Tokyo since 2006 and is currently a Developer Advocate on the Google Cloud Platform team. He is passionate about DevOps, SRE, Python, Go, and container orchestration. When he's not writing controllers and operators in Go, he He runs the Kubernetes Meetup in Tokyo and blogs about Kubernetes and containers at www.ianlewis.org.
