Session Description

When a developer can act without needing to involve the Ops team, they can deliver more products: this is the basis of developer independence. But it can be difficult to achieve both from the developer’s side, due to the learning curve in operations, and for the Ops team, that must shift their responsibilities. Luckily, inserting new technology into your stack can create a unique opportunity for change, and Kubernetes can be this new technology.

Attendees of this session will hear firstand the journey of an application team at Riskified - from starting a new service, all the way to receiving live traffic. Riskified will demonstrate how it used Helm charts to lower the learning curve, leveraged ArgoCD for GitOps deployment and offered massive training to support its developers in the new ecosystem of Kubernetes.
