Kubernetes on OpenStack - the Technical Details

OpenStack and Kubernetes are both complex projects.  Getting full advantage out of a Kubernetes on OpenStack deployment requires understanding where the two projects interact, how Kubernetes exposes OpenStack resources, and which deployment combinations make sense.

This talk assumes an advanced knowledge of OpenStack and leverages that to build a corresponding advanced understanding of Kubernetes.  It goes into specific detail of where and how OpenStack is represented in the Kubernetes codebase, with a high-level description of the Kubernetes architecture for context.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn the various points of integration between Kubernetes and OpenStack, and how to influence the various automatic processes.

They will gain an understanding of some of the Kubernetes internals, and how to navigate the Kubernetes code to find the answers to future questions.
