See you at Kubecon 2017!

Kubecon is around the corner and we’re pumped up for this year’s event. We’ll be exhibiting, conducting training, speaking, announcing an exciting new project, and of course meeting with loads of customers, partners and friends. For those of you who are headed to Kubecon in Austin this year (and even if you are not), we wanted to provide a summary of the main activities that we’ve got going on.

New Bitnami Kubernetes Project

As you know, Bitnami is leading the charge in defining how containers and functions will be packaged and delivered for Kubernetes. Building on Bitnami’s contributions to leading open source projects (Helm, Monocular, Kubeless and more) and leveraging our expertise in application packaging, we’ll be launching a new tool that provides a complete application delivery environment that empowers users to launch, review and share applications all from within a Kubernetes cluster.

Visit or follow us on social media for more details coming Dec 4th. 

Speaking Session: Building Serverless Application Pipelines
Thursday, December 7 • 11:55am - 12:30pm

Session Description: The serverless paradigm is bringing a new type of applications to the forefront of application architecture. Distributed, containerized, scalable, event-driven and ephemeral with fine grained billing. In this talk we will go through several application use-cases that are driving the serverless movement (e.g data processing, IoT, mobile-backends, machine learning) and demonstrate how these applications can be developed and deployed on top of Kubernetes using an open source serverless solution called kubeless. Through live demos and examples, we will show that Kubernetes with its rich and stable core API is the perfect platform to build FaaS solutions.

Add this talk to your KubeCon schedule now!

Live Training: Kubernetes Core Concepts
Tuesday, December 5 • 8:30am - 5:00pm

This one-day course serves as a crash course to learn the basics of Kubernetes right before KubeCon NA. You will discover the Kubernetes architecture and how to install it. You will then learn how to use its basic primitives (i.e pods, deployments and services) to build your own distributed application. The course will be a mix of lectures, demos and hands-on exercises.

There are only a few spots left, so be sure to add this training to your ticket before it is too late!

Booth Activities
Visit us at Booth #S24

Join us at the Bitnami booth for a demo of any of our Kubernetes projects, to see simple ways to launch applications in your cluster, or just to chat about how you are using Kubernetes and how we can help.  We’ll have a few featured slots with our partners at Weaveworks and an exclusive book signing of the soon to be released Kubernetes Cookbook from O’Reilly Media, authored by our very own Sebastien Goasguen.

Live Booth Demos:  GitOps using Weave Cloud Deploy And Bitnami's Sealed Secrets

Live Booth Demos
: Securing Kubeless function endpoints using cert-manager, by Jetstack

Come to the Bitnami booth to meet James Munnelly, from Jetstack, demonstrate how you can use cert-manager to automatically secure your Kubeless function endpoints, and discuss the opportunities that Kubernetes-native TLS certificates opens for your own stack too!

  • Demo at Bitnami Booth at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, December 6th

Book Signing

  • O’Reilly Kubernetes Cookbook book signing at 7:00 pm -8:00 pm on Wednesday December 6th

Looking forward to seeing many of you there!
