Meetup Content:
Operations practices have historically lagged behind development. Agile and Extreme Programming have become common practice for development teams. In the last decade, the DevOps and SRE movements have brought these concepts to operations, borrowing heavily from Lean principles such as Kanban and Value Stream Mapping. So, how does all of this play out if we’re using Kubernetes?

In this meetup, Paul Czarkowski, Principal Technologist at Pivotal, will explain how Kubernetes enables a new cloud-native way of operating software. Attend to learn:

● what cloud-native operations are;
● how to build a cloud-native CI/CD stack; and
● how to deploy and upgrade an application from source to production on Kubernetes.
