Deconstructing Kubernetes with Bryan Liles

To many developers, deploying an application to Kubernetes may feel like riding a wild horse. That experience will soon change as more high-level abstractions appear. Bryan Liles, Senior Staff Engineer at VMware, was kind to share with us his views on how to think about Kubernetes, where the next innovations will appear, and his latest project.

Bryan is an expert in software architecture with nearly 25 years of experience.

Key takeaways:

  • Octant - a Kubernetes dashboard to better understand your clusters.
  • Kubernetes is a platform for building platforms, not the endgame of app deployment experience.
  • YAML is the new machine code.
  • Where to expect new innovations and how the landscape will look in two years.
