A lifelong developer advocate, community organizer, and technology evangelist, Burr Sutter is a featured speaker at technology events around the globe – from Bangalore to Brussels and Berlin to Beijing (and most parts in between) – he is currently Red Hat’s Director of Developer Experience. A Java Champion since 2005 and former president of the Atlanta Java User Group, Burr founded the DevNexus conference with the aim of making access to the world’s leading developer educators affordable to the developer community. When not speaking abroad, Burr is also the passionate creator and orchestrator of highly-interactive live demo keynotes at Red Hat Summit, the company’s premier annual event.

Your code is valueless until it arrives in production. Your creation has no meaning until it runs. The advent of cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way we build and deliver software. Plus, now that Kubernetes has become the defacto standard for cloud native application architecture involving monoliths, microservices and serverless functions, we have a new and extreme environment for our applications.

In this session we will be exploring topics like rolling updates, custom resource definitions (CRDs) with things like Kafka, Istio VirtualServices, advanced rollout/deployment patterns, auto-scale to zero with Knative, source-to-url automated build machinery, where you might be thinking ‘that sounds like Ops’ and we are going to explore why these skills are critical to becoming a cloud native architect.
