Tilt: Kubernetes Tooling with Dan Bentley

Kubernetes continues to mature as a platform for infrastructure management. At this point, many companies have well-developed workflows and deployment patterns for working with applications built on Kubernetes. The complexity of some of these deployments may be daunting, and when a new employee joins a company, that employee needs to get quickly onboarded with the custom dev environment. 

Environment management is not the only issue with Kubernetes development. When a service gets updated, that update needs to be live and usable as fast as possible. When Kubernetes-related errors occur, those problems need to be easily accessible in a UI for triage.

Dan Bentley is the CEO of Windmill Engineering, a company that makes a set of Kubernetes tools called Tilt. Dan joins the show to talk about the workflow for deploying Kubernetes infrastructure and the role of Tilt, the product he has been working on.
