Join us on an evening to discuss Kubernetes operations and building a bank from scratch in the cloud on Kubernetes.
This is a free meet-up. Just sign-up yourself on the Cloud Native Oslo group, and you're in!
Kubernetes Operators are the next phase of the journey towards automating complex applications in containers. The KUDO project introduces an easy way to build Kubernetes operators using declarative YAML. 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. As a result, the quality of operators that are available today varies. The KUDO project provides a universal operator 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.
We have built the next generation mobile bank for Norway in the cloud from scratch! This is the story of how we build Bulder Bank from the ground up in 10 months.
Early on it was decided that we had to be open for radical new ideas if we was to succeed. Important criteria was speed, modern and automated processes and future-proofing. In addition we wanted to make something that was cool and motivated everyone on the team to work on.
The choice landed on Google Kubernetes Engine and Google Firebase and the possibilities this gives us are literally endless! And it gives us the opportunity to move fast while having a more or less fully managed environment that is always up and running!
We have decided to model payments entirely event based and asynchronously where multiple microservices written in Go each do their part before handing over the transaction to the next service over a message queue.
