Kubernetes: A Cautionary Tale
One Company's Journey to Production K8s
The gap between Minikube and Kubernetes in production is vast and full of pain. Want to know what it’s like to implement Kubernetes (k8s) in production for the first time before you collect the bumps and bruises yourself? Join me to learn about the ups and downs of one company’s initial experience with k8s - including who was involved, the scope, and what was intentionally deferred.
We will cover:

- How a real company approached their first proof-of-concept
- How goals changed during implementation of k8s
- What we learned so far
- What we still need to learn
