Bootiful Kubernetes Operators
Conference (INTERMEDIATE level)
You know what's fun? Automating the ever livin' heck out of infrastructure! Slaying that YAML! Nobody wants to painstakingly build something and then spend weeks trying to write the YAML to describe it to the infrastructure. Thankfully, Kubernetes provides composability through abstractions like operators, controllers, and custom resource definitions. These days, it's trivial to extend Kubernetes with a Spring Boot application, turn it into a GraalVM native image that runs in a Docker container, and then deploy that. Join us, and we'll learn how to extend and automate Kubernetes with Spring Boot and Spring Native-powered custom operators and eliminate that ever-so-pesky YAML.
