Kubernetes Development with Tim Hockin

Kubernetes has evolved from a nascent project within Google to a thriving ecosystem of cloud providers, open source projects, and engineers.

Tim Hockin is a principal software engineer who has been with Google for 15 years. Tim joins the show to talk about the early days of the Kubernetes projects, and the engineering efforts that are under way five years into the project.

At KubeCon EU 2019, two of the prevalent subjects of discussion were service mesh and serverless–particularly the Knative project. Tim gave his perspective for how projects that are adjacent to Kubernetes are developed within the community.
