Introduction to Kubernetes – Matt Johnson, DevNet Developer Advocate

As the buzz around containers continues, there are several contenders in managing running instances of containers.

Congrats on Your Overnight Cloud Migration – Now, Can You Support It? Marco Coulter Technical Evangelist

2020 made automation a must-have. Out of necessity, enterprises accelerated into cloud migrations bringing complexity to threaten the stability of both your code and infrastructure. Cloud scale and portability come from containerization and micro services – but they also encourage sprawl and overspending. We know we must monitor – it is a core phase for DevOps and the base of the SRE hierarchy of needs. Come for an update or introduction to what AppDynamics delivers for Kubernetes, pre and post-migration tracking, and user journey mapping from code to business; from user to cloud and compute. This session, aligned to the new AppDynamics labs within Cisco’s sandbox, introduces you to AIOps. You don’t have to spend your life setting breakpoints and looking at logs. Automate the mundane tasks out of your life.
