Prerequisite: If you are unfamiliar with Kubernetes be sure to attend: Understanding Kubernetes: Fundamentals

Kubernetes is a powerful platform for running containers and distributing computation workloads across resources. A significant question is how do you get all your code to this platform, continuously.

In 2019 our community is bursting with new solutions to assist our delivery pipelines. While Jenkins is a dominant player, there is a growing array of new ideas and choices. From coding at your laptop to building containers to deployments, we will explore the various tools and techniques to reduce the delivery frictions.

Fortunately, Kubernetes is also a fitting platform for hosting your continuous tools, pipeline engines, registries, testing, code analysis, security scans, and delivery workflows.

Delivery

From this session, you will understand the latest tools and techniques for pipelining on Kubernetes. Let's up the game on your Maturity Model

About Jonathan Johnson

Jonathan Johnson is halfway into his second score of engineering commercial software. Software has the amazing potential to improve and even save lives. Sadly, lousy software can miss this potential. His journey is driven by delivering helpful software to move us forward.

His applications began with laboratory instrument software and managing its data. Jonathan was enticed by the advent of object-oriented design to develop personal banking software. Banking soon turned to the internet and enterprise applications took off. Java exploded onto the scene and since then he has inhabited that ecosystem. At 454 Life Sciences and Roche Diagnostics, Jonathan returned to laboratory software and leveraged Java-based state machines and enterprise services to manage the terabytes of data flowing out of DNA sequencing instruments. As a hands-on architect at Thermo Fisher Scientific, he applied the advantages of microservices, containers, and Kubernetes to their laboratory management platform.

Now, his architecture voyage sails with the symbiosis of Cognituum's Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) platform with the Kubernetes ecosystem.

Jonathan enjoys comparing and sharing his adventures with peers. He shares ways to modernize application architectures while adhering to the fundamentals of high modularity and low coupling. A longtime resident of Connecticut, he discusses his experiences with technical groups and meetups. You will often see Jonathan schooling and retooling on the NFJS tours.
