Wrapping Nebraska around Omaha: Open Sourcing the Container Linux Update Process

While CoreOS Container Linux was extremely popular among the cloud native community, its updates manager (CoreUpdater) was always kept proprietary. In this talk, we share details of a new 100% Open Source project, called Nebraska, which implements the Google-originated Omaha protocol for updating Container Linux (and any other Omaha-powered applications), with a modern UI and UX.

Nebraska thus brings a drop-in replacement for the proprietary CoreUpdater service, ensuring not only the availability of this service for any Container Linux users, but also its future as a Open Source Software.

Yes, we need a new dashboard!

Kubernetes is a complex project, and one of the goals of UX and design is to make complex things feel simpler, so using a web dashboard for accessing and managing Kubernetes makes a lot of sense. Fortunately, there are many choices out there for those who want to try out dashboards, unfortunately, those dashboards don't always make things simpler.

In this presentation I will introduce a new dashboard that is being developed from scratch, with the bold goal of becoming one of the reference dashboards for Kubernetes.
