Natale is a Software Engineer and Solution Architect with more than 10 years of expertise on IT and ICT technologies and a consolidated background on telecommunications, DevOps and Linux operating systems.
Today Natale is Lead Developer Advocate at Red Hat. He is co-author of “Modernizing Enterprise Java” and “GitOps Cookbook” books for O’Reilly, helping people within communities and customers have success with their Kubernetes and cloud native strategy.
The software development cycle is mainly composed of two loops, one closer to the developer’s inner-loop; where you code, test, debug iteratively. And one further away is the outer-loop; where your code runs inside a container image you must build, push and deploy.
As containers and Kubernetes become the de-facto standard fabric where to deploy our apps, it’s essential to prepare and boost local development into a so-called cloud-native workspace spanning the inner and outer loop.
In this session, attendees will get an overview of JKube, a collection of plugins and libraries for Java developers that facilitate containerization and deployment to Kubernetes in the Java way with Maven, Gradle, and a toolkit to package Java apps transparently.
