Introduction to Kudo - Kubernetes Operators The Easy Way
11-17, 17:40–18:10 (UTC), The Gallery

Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. Many Operators that exist today handle initial deployment, but they don’t provide automation for tasks like binary upgrades, configuration updates, and failure recovery. Implementing a production-grade controller for a complex workload typically requires thousands of lines of code and many months of development. The Kudo project ( ) provides a framework to enable automated creation of operators for Kubernetes, in most cases just using YAML. In this talk I’ll introduce the Kudo project, and demo the creation of a Kubernetes operator using Kudo.
