Title: Kubernetes and Open Source - What Do They Mean for IT?
Abstract: The transformation of IT through open source has been an ongoing process for literally decades. Many layers of the enterprise software stack have seen an influx of open source technologies, from Linux as OS to Spring/Java as application platform to more recently Kubernetes as the orchestration engine. Craig and Dirk will discuss a bit of the history and motivation of these changes and focus on the impact this has and will continue to have on the IT environments that our customers are building, running, and managing.
