Stateful vs stateless? We will stately be stating our statutes regarding the status of the state of statefulness and statelessness on k8s- oh yea!
In the DoK Community, one of the main issues that folks have are how in the world can they flatten the learning curve when it comes to running stateful applications in k8s. That's why we've brought on 3 experts from 3 different countries to tell us what state state (intentionally doubled) is in!
Rosemary Wang works to bridge the technical and cultural barriers between infrastructure engineers and application developers.
She has a fascination for solving intractable problems with code, whether it be helping an infrastructure engineer learn to code or an application developer troubleshoot infrastructure failures. She also interfaces with vendors, clients, startups, and open source projects to find creative software solutions for infrastructure.
When she is not drawing on whiteboards, Rosemary valiantly attempts to hack stacks of various infrastructure systems on her laptop while watering her houseplants.
Lili Cosic is a Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat, working on OpenShift monitoring. She is also a kube-state-metrics, prometheus-operator and kube-prometheus project maintainer. Previously she worked at Weaveworks on the Weave cloud integration with Kubernetes and before that, she found her passion for Kubernetes operators at Kinvolk creating first operators. In her free time, Lili enjoys experimenting with Kubernetes, cooking and distributed systems.
Tomasz Cholewa is the co-founder of Cloud Code Labs and he believes that good applications deserve even better environments where they can spread their wings and it's his job to help you create them. To achieve it he uses cloud and containers, but mostly he listens carefully to understand and use the right mix of proper technology and processes around it. His field of expertise is public cloud (AWS), containers and their orchestration engines - OpenShift and Kubernetes.
