Intro to Cloud Native Buildpacks - Terence Lee, Heroku & Emily Casey, Pivotal
You're great at running containers but you shouldn't have to be great at building them. In this talk, you'll learn about Cloud Native Buildpacks, a higher-level abstraction for building apps compared to Dockerfiles. Buildpacks are a standardized tool for creating images in a secure, reproducible, and efficient manner. As an app developer, you don't need to know best practices around ordering commands for layer reuse. As an operator, you don't need to worry about exposing developers to the responsibilities that come with Dockerfile. Come learn how buildpacks meet developers at their source code, automate the delivery of both OS-level and application-level dependency upgrades, and help you efficiently handle day-2 app operations

Intro: Harbor - Enterprise Cloud Native Artifact Registry - Steven Ren & Alex Xu, VMware
As container technology becomes widely adopted in the industry, how to manage containerized applications poses new challenges to platform engineers. One of the challenges is to securely and efficiently manage containerized application packages with either container image or Helm Chart format. Project Harbor is an open-source trusted cloud native registry project that stores, manages, signs, and scans content, thus resolving common image or Helm Chart management challenges. In this presentation, we will focus on the management of container images and Helm Charts through Harbor. We will review and provide solutions to the challenges faced by organizations, including RBAC (Role-Based Access Control), vulnerability scanning, large scale content distribution, content replication, content trust (notary), webhook, tag retention, and DevOps integrations, etc.. Real-world use cases will be discussed in the session. Of course, fantastic demos will be shown to let you easily understand the related use cases.

Panel: Is Service Mesh Ready for Edge-Native Applications? - Wendy Cartee, Ramki Krishnan, VMware; Srini Addepalli, Intel; Parveen Patel, Google; & Ravi Chunduru, Verizon
Edge deployments, in contrast to large public clouds, pose interesting demands since they are physically insecure & capacity constrained. Also, Edge Computing Apps such as AR-VR, have low-latency characteristics with RTT typically few msec and pose further demands to edge deployments.

Edge Computing Apps like to use Service Meshes (SM) such as Istio/Envoy, Linkerd etc. to offload infrastructure related activities such as security.

In this panel, we first examine the unique challenges in using SM technologies for Edge Computing Apps - especially the additional latency and resource usage to due to Kernel Networking. Next, we will explore software techniques such as Kernel Bypass, QUIC as an alternative to TCP/IP etc. to alleviate the performance bottlenecks introduced by SM technologies including early results. Last, we will touch upon hardware acceleration techniques for the above.

gRPC Deep Dive: Prevent Your Service From Overtaking Itself - Lidi Zheng, Google
In any distributed system, it is very common to have mismatched processing power on sending (client) and receiving (server) side. This can result in failures or excessive buffering of messages on either side leading to out-of-memory situation. Fortunately, gRPC has a flow control mechanism that transparently throttles the traffic to protect both services. In this presentation, we will dive into how does networking protocols (like TCP, HTTP, gRPC) control traffic, and how gRPC flow control facilitate your usage of the bandwidth between your services.

OpenFaaS Cloud + Linkerd: A Secure, Multi-Tenant Serverless Platform - Charles Pretzer, Buoyant & Alex Ellis, OpenFaaS, LTD
In this talk, maintainers of the OSS projects OpenFaaS and Linkerd discuss and demonstrate combining the features of each to build a scalable and secure multitenant serverless platform.
OpenFaaS is a lightweight serverless platform built on Docker and k8s. Linkerd is an ultralight service mesh for k8s. The projects share philosophy around simplicity, ease of use, speed, and low resource impact. OpenFaaS was designed for small teams and tackled multitenancy by creating OpenFaaS Cloud to layer on top. Scaling for multitenancy requires more robust networking, encryption, detailed metrics, and load-balancing strategies than Kubernetes L4 can offer.
Linkerd fits because it provides the features listed above required for scaling multitenancy while remaining focused on simplicity, security, and performance as a part of a modular platform built around OpenFaaS.

Balancing Power and Pain: Moving a Startup From a PaaS to Kubernetes - David Sudia, GoSpotCheck & Toni Rib, Gusto
By hiding a lot of complexity and allowing a team to move fast and simply "heroku push" applications, PaaS solutions like Heroku are a perfect fit when you are early stage startup. However, what do you do when your business starts to get traction, and your scale or use case begins to stretch the limitations of a PaaS? This talk will share the story of a startup's successful migration away from a PaaS to a self-built platform powered by CNCF technology.

We'll share the highlights of our journey, such as how we translated PaaS concepts to our new infrastructure, and explain the series of choices we made, like assembling our platform from Kubernetes and other CNCF components. We will also share some of our difficulties, with the goal that other organisations can avoid making the same mistakes.

Making Plugins Mainstream: Developing a Plugin Manager for Kubectl - Ahmet Alp Balkan, Google
Kubectl Plugins are an extension mechanism to add custom commands to Kubernetes developers’ favorite tool: kubectl. As the plugin mechanism became stable recently in Kubernetes 1.12 and people started to develop plugins, we realized a challenge is upon us: How to make these plugins easy to develop, package and distribute.

This talk is a Kubernetes SIG CLI subproject "krew" and how we have designed and built a "cross-platform package manager" that makes plugins accessible to vast amount of Kubernetes users easily.

This talk will go through:
* Kubernetes project’s emphasis on extensibility
* Introduction to kubectl plugins and writing a small plugin
* Designing Krew: how to write a plugin manager for kubernetes without writing a fully-fledged package manager
* Life of a kubectl plugin managed by Krew
* Challenges of building a curated catalog of plugins as Kubernetes OSS community

Gone in 60 Minutes: Migrating 20 TB from AKS to GKE in an Hour with Vitess - Derek Perkins, Nozzle
The holy grail of Cloud Native tech is to have zero vendor lock-in. That becomes extra challenging when dealing with stateful applications. By leveraging out of the box Kubernetes and Vitess features, Derek and his team were able to migrate a high throughput production workload of 20 TB from Azure (AKS) to Google (GKE) in under an hour. This workload consisted of dozens of services writing to MySQL, including heavy usage of the under-marketed pub/sub style message queue feature of Vitess. Derek will go into detail about the public Helm charts that were used to set up these workloads and how Kubernetes and Vitess were configured. We will also touch on a few ecosystem projects like external-dns, cert-manager that helped make the transition low-touch and seamless.

Prepare to Be Boarded! A Tale of Kubernetes, Plunder, and Cryptobooty - James Condon, Lacework
How are Kubernetes cluster’s being compromised in the wild? There aren’t a whole lot of public reports detailing successful attacks against Kubernetes clusters. The goal of this talk is to demystify these attacks and provide recommendations to prevent them.

In this talk, a successful attack on a Kubernetes honeypot is analyzed. The amount of time it took for this to occur is quite surprising. Next, using this information, the scope of research is widened to survey other clusters that have fallen victim to the same attacks. Multiple cryptojacking campaigns emerge and details behind the methods of the attackers are shared. After providing statistics on these attacks, recommendations for prevention along with indicators of compromise are provided.

Identity Bootstrapping in Multi-tenant Multi-cluster Kubernetes - Manish Mehta, Volterra & Derek Suzuki, The Voleon Group
With the increasing popularity of Kubernetes, providing managed K8s has been a great way to convert enthusiasts into adopters. However, current solutions mainly focus on providing isolated clusters and adopters are responsible for making workload identities work across clusters. If multi-tenancy is added to the mix, the challenges of bootstrapping identities that work across clusters - but within tenancy - are even greater.

In this presentation, the speakers will share challenges of securely bootstrapping identities in such a setup (especially when the individual clusters could be running in untrusted environments), the tradeoffs, and possible solutions. Manish will also introduce planned open-source components of a solution used by Volterra Edge Services for identity bootstrapping and other security services.

Creating a Micro Open-Source Community with Helm - Katie Gamanji, Condé Nast International
For over a century Condé Nast International has set the benchmark for print and digital publishing. Our portfolio is composed of luxury and fashion-oriented brands, like Vogue, GQ, Wired, Glamour and many more. Condé Nast International is a digital-first company, targeting to migrate 34 out of 62 existing websites to the Kubernetes clusters across the globe.

Kubernetes underpins Condé Nast International's entire infrastructure, and Helm is used as the de facto deployment package manager. These two components were critical for the delivery of the highest developer experience.

In time, the development teams became self-sufficient and started to contribute to the base Helm charts instead of going the feature requests route. This created a substantial and agile environment for developers, being able to instigate changes and contribute to the internal developer community.
