Kubernetes is the choice for running autoscaling, resilient applications in containers. Containers divorce applications from servers in the same way that virtual machines divorced servers from hardware a generation ago. We cover lessons learned in bringing our existing PHP stack onto Kubernetes.

This talk covers our experiences moving our PHP-based application stack onto Kubernetes from puppet-based virtual servers and embracing immutable infrastructure.

In the process, we:
* improved scalability over several orders of magnitude
* simplified reuse of infrastructure components for new services
* enhanced our security posture
* reduced system costs through aggressive autoscaling

In this talk, we will cover
* Kubernetes concepts
* Practical considerations when migrating to Kubernetes and Docker
* How to configure and launch a PHP application in Docker and Kubernetes
* How to handle scalability, deployments, cron jobs, and secret management

Nice talk, thank you.

Good talk overall. I finally learned what the hell a pod is!

I felt that using the first 10 minutes to go over Docker basics was not the best use of time. I would have preferred that the talk focus on Kubernetes. The talk was pretty high level, and being able to focus exclusively on Kubernetes would have allowed a little more depth or breadth of coverage.

Chris was great! Very animated and engaging.
Excellent job taking a VERY complicated subject matter and boiling it down and give us a good overview.

Very instructive, gives motivation to jump in Kubernetes :)

Well done

Exactly what I'd hoped for from a non-workshop presentation. Good coverage of concepts from a voice clearly prepared by experience.

Lots of great info. I liked how you were able to integrate your real-world usage into the talk.

Great overview of the Kubernetes platform.

Highlights and caveats for people interested in Kurbernetes. First-hand story of one company's experience. This was a great intro for me, that points me in the direction of needing to research a lot more.

Learned a good high level overview of kubernetes. Would have liked more info on how to make it easier for local development, with services like S3, etc..

Really appreciated the broad stroke discussion (not diving into yaml configs).

Excellent talk! Chris did awesome!
