Your Guide to KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU

Suzanne Panoplos

Following on the heels of DockerCon SF, the team is packing their bags and heading to Barcelona for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU from May 20- 23. Docker employees, community members and Docker captains will be there speaking about and demonstrating Docker and Kubernetes.

Stop by Booth G14 to learn more about our Docker Kubernetes Services (DKS), which is part of the recently announced Docker Enterprise 3.0. Docker Enterprise 3.0 is the only container platform that provides a simple and integrated desktop-to-cloud experience for both Docker and Kubernetes.

Get Involved with Open Source

Get involved in and learn more about some of the projects Docker has been working on with the Kubernetes community:

  • containerd – the core container runtime that was recently graduated from the CNCF and is in use by millions of users
  • Notary/TUF –  a project designed to address the key security challenge for enterprises working with containers
  • Docker Compose on Kubernetes – a recently open-sourced project that enables users to take a Docker Compose file and translates it into Kubernetes resources.

Also, there is an opportunity to join Docker and Microsoft in contributing to the Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB) specification – an open source, cloud-agnostic specification for packaging and running distributed applications. With CNAB, organizations can package Helm charts, Kubernetes YAML files and Docker Compose files in a single format that is easily shareable and distributed in Docker Hub and Docker Trusted Registry.

Learn More from Docker Experts

KubeCon will also provide a great opportunity to learn from industry experts and hear from those working with Kubernetes for their production applications. To help you navigate your way through the hundreds of sessions, Docker has put together a helpful guide to key talks being given during the event:

Tuesday, May 21
Wednesday, May 22
  • Inside the CNCF Project Security Reviews – Justin Cormack, Docker   – The talk will cover how to make the most of a security review, what to expect from it, what to bring to the review process, and how to maximise the benefits of a review. It will be illustrated with details of the review process for the Notary and TUF audits from the inside as I was involved in this process, and with a detailed analysis of the public reports, including Prometheus, CoreDNS, Envoy, containerd and more.
  • 5 Steps to Building Inclusive Communities – Ashlynn Polini, Docker With 10 DockerCons under her belt, Ashlynn Polini shares the secrets behind creating inclusive events and programs for developers and operator communities
  • Service Meshes: At What Cost? – Lee Calcote, Layer5 & Girish Ranganathan SolarWinds – This talk will share methodology and results of performance testing research done in collaboration with a university, through the lens an open source service mesh benchmark tool – a tool used to provide a common benchmark across service meshes (their control planes, like Istio) and modern proxies (their data planes, like Envoy).
Thursday, May 23
  • Storage Provisioning for Kubernetes on Windows – Anusha Ragunathan & Jean Rouge, Docker – As support for Windows container workloads on Kubernetes heads to GA, the ecosystem will need robust storage interfaces for the many Windows apps that need to manage state. This session will explore the foundational constructs around persistent storage in Kubernetes, go over existing mechanisms in-tree that support stateful Windows workloads, dive into enhancements necessary in existing external storage provisioners and discuss the future of the space.
  • Intro + Deep Dive: containerd – Wei Fu, Alibaba & Mike Brown, IBM – This talk will give attendees an overview of how they extend/modify containerd to support enhanced integrations for custom production deployments.
