Keynote Panel: Moving to the Modern Infrastructure - moderated by Michelle Noorali, Software Engineer, Deis
Becoming cloud native goes beyond the use of containers and Kubernetes, it is looking into other technologies in the stack (tracing, monitoring), it is adapting those technologies to work for your business, feeding back code and updates to the community, and a cultural shift within your team and company.

During this panel the audience will hear from end user companies like Amadeus, Ticketmaster and Haufe-lexware who consume cloud native technologies and use it to deliver products and services to consumers and other businesses. The panel will discuss what stage (early testing to full deployment) they are in in terms of becoming cloud native, the changes they are making/have made, the tools they are looking into (OpenTracing, Zipkin, Prometheus, etc.), the motivation for the change, the industry examples they are following, and the contributions they have made back to the open source community.

Lightning Talk: Flexible Logging Pipelines with Fluentd and Kubernetes - Jakob Karalus, codecentric
Log forwarding from containers in kubernetes with fluentd works like a charm. But most applications require more than just forwarding, various applications require different parsing patterns, outputs, formats etc. Managing these in a large multi tenant cluster can be challenging and usually require an additional shared forwarding/parsing infrastructure. Otherwise manual configuration changes by a cluster operator are needed. Both ways can be problematic when many different teams share the same cluster.

In this Lighting Talk attendees will learn how to leverage the tools to automatically load specifications/grok patterns from kubernetes at runtime. This leads developers to define those on their own in their pod definition without the existence of a cluster operator or an extra infrastructure. Because of this new possibility the developer gains more flexibility in his application without the necessity to coordinate with cluster operators or other teams.

Keynote: Building the Infrastructure that Powers the Future of AI - Vicki Cheung, Member of Technical Staff & Jonas Schneider, Member of Technical Staff, OpenAI
OpenAI is a non-profit research company that does cutting-edge AI research. Our mission is to build safe AI, and ensure AI's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible. This means democratizing the technology and releasing our research publicly. As a result, we rely heavily on open-source software. The majority of our experiments run on our Kubernetes cluster that spans Azure, AWS, and our own data center. Kubernetes and Docker have allowed us the flexibility to experiment with various computing frameworks and topologies without paying the infrastructure cost. However, our use cases are distinctly different from the well-supported microservice use case, and we've written custom components on top of Kubernetes to optimize for our work. Some examples include our own autoscaler for batch jobs, a library to deploy distributed Tensorflow jobs, custom scripts to do GPU-scheduling and CPU-affinity, and a variety of internal tools to make Kubernetes friendly to researchers who have no experience in operations. In this talk, we will go over some of the motivations and internals of our customizations, as well as an example of how they all come to work together to accelerate research on the Universe platform.

Keynote: The Kubernetes Application Registry: Easily Deploying Complex Applications with CoreOS Quay - Brandon Philips, CTO, CoreOS

CoreOS has extended its container image registry, Quay, so that it can manage and store complete Kubernetes applications, which are composed of images along with configuration files. Quay now delivers a first-of-its-kind Kubernetes Application Registry that with this release is also integrated with Kubernetes Helm so that deployment of an application can be completely automated.

Over the past few months, the Quay team has been laying the foundation for the first Kubernetes Application Registry. On the server side, we’ve added an experimental registry API to Quay and a minimal UI enabling the storage, discovery, and management of complete applications. On the client side, we’ve created a registry plugin for Helm, the Kubernetes package manager, that brings all of these features to the ecosystem of Helm applications, known as Charts. One of the most interesting new features introduced to both Quay and Helm is the concept of customizable release channels, much like how CoreOS ships Alpha, Beta, and Stable channels for Container Linux releases. All of this is done through a community-driven API specification, called App Registry, that enables Kubernetes ecosystem to develop more sophisticated tools and more reliable deployment pipelines. This ultimately delivers a Kubernetes Application Registry.

Join Brandon Philips to learn about CoreOS Quay and how it works to store containers and applications for Kubernetes, and get involved.

Programming Kubernetes with the Go SDK [I] - Aaron Schlesinger, Deis
Most people talk to their Kubernetes clusters using the kubectl tool, but we’re seeing more and more cases where engineers are writing their own software to talk to the Kubernetes API itself. The use cases for doing so are many: writing ingress controllers, managing pods and watching logs to name a few.

At Deis, we’re using the Kubernetes Go SDK for quite a few different purposes. We first started by vendoring in the Kubernetes mono-repo to watch pod events. We pushed our code to production and quickly learned all about Kubernetes event stream internals and the server-side event cache. When we got something working reliably, we expanded our usage of this client code to a few other domains. We later migrated to the the client-go package when it was released and now use it in almost all of our projects and infrastructure.

In this talk, we’ll share our use cases and detail what we’ve learned using client-go in production. We’ll also share some best practices and show a demo to illustrate how you can get started with the client yourself.

Life of a Packet [I] - Michael Rubin, Google
Tracing the path of network traffic in the kubernetes system. Clarifying which API objects map to implementation and how Google deploys this in GKE today. Attendees will learn about topics from how networking packets are processed when the cluster is working as designed and what are common problems when the cluster is being creative and surprising.

Autoscaling a Multi-Platform Kubernetes Cluster Built with kubeadm [I] - Lucas Käldström, Upper Secondary School Student - Individual Maintainer
Does Kubernetes run on any architecture other than Intel/AMD64? Yes it does, since v1.3.0.
Lucas Käldström (@luxas), a general upper secondary school student, added support for ARM and ARM 64-bit to the core codebase earlier this year. Kubernetes is all about letting you choose the container runtime, the operating system, the environment (cloud vs bare metal) etc., so why wouldn’t you like to choose CPU architecture as well?

The talk demonstrates Kubernetes’ multi-architecture features in a very practical manner: by having a 10-node cluster of credit-card-sized devices with three architectures (amd64, arm and arm64) in front of the audience. The cluster is deployed with kubeadm. For the demo, a cross-platform nginx workload will be created from the dashboard, deployed to all nodes regardless of architecture, monitored via an auto-updating grafana dashboard and autoscaled by a Horizontal Pod Autoscaler while traffic is generated against the cluster’s Ingress controller. And just to make things more exciting, a node’s power cable may be unplugged by a volunteer from the audience, at any time during the heavy traffic to demonstrate Kubernetes’ auto-healing functions.

Kubernetes Cluster Federation: How to Write a Federated Controller? [A] - Madhu C.S. & Nikhil Jindal, Google
Extensibility is one of the major selling points of Kubernetes. Cluster Federation is built on the same spirit, but the tooling provided in the form of libraries and framework to build federated controllers is quite different than the tooling provided to build Kubernetes controllers. In this talk, we will show you the tools and techniques provided by Cluster Federation to write your own federated controllers. We will also show you the steps involved in building a federated controller by building one during the talk.

Writing a Custom Controller: Extending the Functionality of Your Cluster [I] - Aaron Levy, CoreOS
Much of the functionality in a Kubernetes cluster is managed by a reconciliation pattern within "controllers". The node, service, or deployment controllers (just to name a few) watch for changes to objects, then act on those changes to drive your cluster to a desired state. This same pattern can be used to implement custom logic, which can be used to extend the functionality of your cluster without ever needing to modify Kubernetes itself.

This talk will cover how to implement your own custom controller, from contacting the Kubernetes API to using existing libraries to easily watch, react, and update components in your cluster. By building on existing functionality and following a few best practices, you can quickly and easily implement your own custom controller.

Scale Kubernetes to Support 50,000 Services [I] - Haibin Xie & Quinton Hoole, Huawei Technologies
Kubernetes currently has two load balancing modes: userspace and IPTables. They both have limitation on scalability and performance. We introduced IPVS as third kube-proxy mode which scales kubernetes load balancer to support 50,000 services. Beyond that, control plane needs to be optimized in order to deploy 50,000 services. We will introduce alternative solutions and our prototypes with detailed performance data.
