Charting Your Own Course Through the Cloud Native Landscape

The cloud native landscape is notoriously vast, and there is no hope of one human ever understanding every piece of it. Perhaps you should just quit now! Or instead, join Matty and Whitney on a journey with three fictional learners who are all trying to level up their Kubernetes knowledge, but with different backgrounds, goals, and learning styles. They will share resources and learning strategies that are beneficial to each. Anecdotal stories about how some real-life, well-known Kubernetes community members got their start will be sprinkled in along the way! The goal is not to give a comprehensive view of the Kubernetes learning landscape but instead to leave you feeling empowered to define your own personal learning strategies and goals, and then to seek out the resources that will best help you!

The Journey From DevOps to Cloud Engineering

We have been talking about devops for years. Along the way, we’ve added various syllables to the portmanteau “devops” to include all the practices and disciplines that are key to doing this effectively. What if DevOps, DevSecOps, and all the other variants have been about the same idea all along?

Cloud Engineering is an emergent way of expressing how we use and enhance software engineering practices in a cloud world. This goes beyond application design and architecture but includes how we build, deploy, and manage the services and applications that provide value to our users and customers.

In this talk I will step through the evolution of devops and how the practice of Cloud Engineering is a natural progression. I will take the traditional expression of CALMS (Culture, Automation, Lean, Measurement, and Sharing) and connect them to the build, deploy, and manage practices reflected in the Cloud Engineering discipline.

Cloud Engineering isn’t “the new DevOps”. It’s the evolution of everything we have been talking about for the last ten years (and more). Let’s learn how we can provide innovation, scale, reliability, security, and compliance by harnessing the practices across all of the associate disciplines. And maybe, along the way, “take DevOps back” to what it’s really been about all this time.
