Bootiful Kubernetes Operators

Tiffany Jernigan, Developer Advocate, VMwareTimo Salm, Senior Lead Tanzu DevX Solution Engineer, VMware

You know what’s fun? Automating infrastructure and eliminating YAML. Nobody wants to painstakingly build something then spend weeks trying to write the YAML to describe it to the infrastructure. Thankfully, Kubernetes provides composability through abstractions such as operators, controllers, and custom resource definitions. These days, it’s trivial to extend Kubernetes with a Spring Boot application, turn it into a GraalVM native image that runs in a Docker container, and then deploy that. Join us and learn how to extend and automate Kubernetes with Spring Boot and Spring Native-powered custom operators, and eliminate that pesky YAML.
