Sponsored Keynote: Keep Kubernetes Caffeinated - Erin Boyd, Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat
Today, we have a whole host of amazing coffee makers that can take a pod of coffee, brew it, deploy it into your cup, add the milk and sweetener, and deliver it just how you like it. In the same way, Kubernetes Operators are taking the complexity out of producing, deploying, and operating applications.
One particular example of where Operators are making a big impact is Storage. Storage features in Kubernetes are evolving to solving more complex problems such as data replication and support for object storage. Come and see how the Rook project is extending these storage capabilities to deliver your applications—just like your favorite cup of coffee.

Sponsored Keynote: Modernizing Virtualization Technology for Cloud Native Computing - Arjan van de Ven, Intel Fellow, Intel
Fifteen years of virtualized system software has led increasingly powerful capabilities, from containers to FaaS stacks, offering increasing levels of density and agility to application developers. These modern solutions, however, build on top of legacy layers that predate cloud computing as we now know it. Rethinking and reinventing these lower layers of the system stack can offer even greater improvements in density, performance, and security.

One such example is at the VMM layer, which commonly depends on software that includes emulation and other unnecessary features. The rust-vmm project provides an alternative approach: a toolkit to build workload-specific virtual machine monitors. This keynote will discuss new developments in that project, from support of lightweight virtual machines to FaaS, and why you’d want to use different VMMs for these different delivery models.

Keynote: (Open)Telemetry Makes Observability Simple - Sarah Novotny, Open Source Wonk, Azure OCTO, Microsoft & Liz Fong-Jones, Principal Developer Advocate, Honeycomb.io
Observability is a fundamental requirement for sustainably developing and operating cloud native applications. It must be accessible to a diversity of users and support a robust ecosystem of tooling around these common needs.

Liz and Sarah explain how OpenTracing and OpenCensus merging benefits the entire cloud native ecosystem. With OpenTelemetry, users and vendors alike can focus on distilling insights out of their data rather than duplicating instrumentation work. Sarah and Liz will show the progress so far, integrations with peer CNCF projects, and how you can participate!

Sponsored Keynote: Beyond Badges—How Inclusive Communities Accelerate Innovation - Kostadis Roussos, Principal Engineer, VMware
This talk is an expression of gratitude. The energy and innovation of this community is transforming our company. Our first forays into the world of containers were inward-looking and produced some false starts. As we have engaged more with the community around Kubernetes, you have flipped our perspective from infrastructure up to developer down.

Now we’re moving with the ecosystem and making our biggest technology bet in a decade—embedding Kubernetes in our flagship product, vSphere. Kubernetes has the power to be a uniting force for IT operators and developers, and this community is the catalyst.

Keynote: E2E 5G Cloud Native Network - Heather Kirksey, VP, Community and Ecosystem Development, Linux Foundation; Azhar Sayeed, Chief Architect, Red Hat; & Fu Qiao, Project Manager, China Mobile
It’s no secret that Kubernetes has gained significant traction in the cloud and enterprise software ecosystem, but less widely known is how this momentum is now moving into global telco networks as the next major area of adoption. Building on the momentum from a live keynote demo In Amsterdam last fall (See the demo here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClQ7nBKfL5I&t=385s), a team made up of volunteers from several project communities, companies, and network operators has taken a cloud native approach to developing an E2E 5G network demonstration built on open source infrastructure. The demo will use a live prototype running in labs around the world using k8s and other open source technologies to deliver a fully containerized 5G network on stage in San Diego. The demo will showcase both how the telecom industry is using cloud native software to build out their next gen networks, and also show solution providers what’s possible in this exciting new space.

Keynote: In Search of the Kubernetes "Rails" Moment - Bryan Liles, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2019 Co-Chair & Senior Staff Engineer, VMware
Back in 2005, David Heinemeier Hansson wowed the web programming world with his demonstration of creating a blog in 15 minutes. Rails' secret trick was convention over configuration or decreasing the decisions a developer has to initially make.
Five years in, Kubernetes could benefit from a Rails moment. What could that moment look like, and what could it mean for developers who have to engage with Kubernetes? In this keynote, Bryan will explore what the landscape could look like with more developer-friendly tools and systems.

Keynote: Hello From the Other Side: Dispatches From a Kubernetes Attacker - Ian Coldwater, Lead Platform Security Engineer, Heroku
Attackers have user stories too. Are you designing with them in mind?

As an attacker, Ian Coldwater would like to help you understand these users and their stories. What do their mindsets, motivations and methodologies look like? What do attackers look for when they look at a Kubernetes context, what do they do when they get in there, and what can you do to protect your clusters and code against them?

Being able to understand these perspectives can help you broaden your own. Let’s explore them together, and learn how to build stronger, more secure systems accordingly.

Keynote: Seamless Customer Experience at Walmart Stores Powered by Kubernetes@Edge - Maneesh Vittolia, Principal Architect & Sriram Komma, Principal Product Owner, Walmart
At Walmart, while major application software can and does operate in the cloud, stores or any client edge compute cannot avoid the intermittent network events that can create less than ideal availability and performance of the software during those times.  This can lead to poor customer experience and/or failed transactions during checkout.
Because of Walmart's scale of serving around 265 million customer every week, the comnbined effect on customer experience as well as the loss of revenue is pretty huge.

To overcome the issue between Stores and cloud, Walmart is building and rolling out the next generation of Point of Sale (POS) systems on highly resource constraint edge computing environment using modern service mesh based technologies designed to allow maximum business flexibility, extreme performance and rapid deployment and powered by Kubernetes.

Keynote: Finding the Joy in Chaos Engineering - Ana Medina, Chaos Engineer, Gremlin & Lenny Sharpe, Director of Engineering, Target
Learn how Target and Gremlin have built a resiliency engineering capability that enables teams to build more reliable systems. Hear how developing a strong culture around Chaos Engineering has paid off at Target. We'll share our journey from experimenting locally to running multi-team GameDays.

Chaos Engineering is a disciplined approach to identifying failures before they become outages. By proactively testing how a system responds under stress, you can identify and fix failures before they end up in the news. Chaos Engineering lets you compare what you think will happen to what actually happens in your systems. You literally break things on purpose to learn how to build more reliable systems.

Lenny Sharpe walks you through Chaos Engineering at Target, covering the tools and practices you need to implement Chaos Engineering with Kubernetes in your organization. Even if you’re already using Chaos Engineering, you’ll learn to identify new ways to use the practice to improve the reliability of your network and services.

Ana Medina will share a demonstration of how you can practice Chaos Engineering on Kubernetes and use it to improve the reliability of your systems. She gets you started using Chaos Engineering with your own team and gives you the tools to measure success. She will also demonstrate how GameDay environments can be used to learn about Chaos Engineering. She explains how to practice Chaos Engineering on AWS EKS, GCP GKE, Azure AKS and your own homegrown Kubernetes environments.

Some advanced topics you’ll cover include how to use monitoring tools combined with Chaos Engineering to help you create reliable distributed systems, where you can learn more, and how to join the Chaos Engineering community.
