Slicing Kubernetes: Raspberry Pis, Monitoring and Chaos

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 13:30 ET / 17:30 UTC | 50 min


Do you ever feel like your systems lack unnecessary complexity and overengineering? This is the talk for you. Join me as I detail the creation of a Raspberry Pi-based desktop Kubernetes cluster in an attempt to overcomplicate the already complex world of stateless web application deployment. We’ll walk through building an observability platform using open source tools like Prometheus, Grafana, and Jaeger to keep a close watch on our tiny fragile microservices and then break them intentionally for our own amusement.

Jonan Scheffler, Developer Advocate, Funemployed

Jonan is a developer advocate with a long history of breaking things in public and occasionally putting them back together again. His interest in physical computing often leads him to experiment with robotics and microelectronics, though his professional experience is more closely tied to cloud services and modern application development techniques. In order to break things more effectively, he is particularly excited about observability lately, and he’s committed to helping developers around the world gain insight into their systems by distilling their data into actionable monitoring.
