Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, operations, and scaling of containerized applications. Google developed Kubernetes after fifteen years of running containers in production.
Brendan Burns is a founder of the Kubernetes project, and he joins us to talk about the lessons learned as Google has built containerized applications to distribute across its massive infrastructure. We talk about Docker, Borg, Kubernetes, and other distributed systems technologies.
Applications crash, and engineers need to be able to quickly find the root cause of a crash. Apps have become distributed, and debugging workflows have changed. Developers need better tools to identify and troubleshoot problems with their apps.
Ben Curtis joins us today to discuss Honeybadger, an exception and monitoring tool for web applications. We discuss how software tools can be used to detect problems faster and improve the debugging workflow.
