I am working as a Software Engineer for VMware. I am an active contributor to kubernetes SIG cluster lifecycle. I am an also an acting reviewer for Cluster API provider for AWS.
While Kubernetes has become a de facto standard for running the Cloud Native workloads, the platform on which Kubernetes runs remains pretty diverse. There are several projects that have come up to solve the challenges around managing the Kubernetes Lifecycle Management, with Cluster API becoming a standard way to tackle the problem.
They will walk through the challenges around Kubernetes Lifecycle management from Day-0 to Day-n and deep dive into the Cluster API projects that tackle them in a declarative way. As an example, we will demonstrate how to use CAPI providers to manage Kubernetes Clusters on AWS/Azure.
