Berwout de Vries Robles -
"Getting started with observability on Kubernetes"

So let’s say you have a kubernetes cluster that is running a few services. You have not done much in terms of observability and are starting to get a little overwhelmed managing your services. You feel like you need some sort of overview but you don’t really know where to start. In this talk we will explore how to build up your observability step by step starting from nothing. We will start the talk with a few basic services deployed to Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). From there we will try to determine what the priorities and quick wins are. We will see what it takes to implement a few of them and what the relevant concerns are when we do implement them. Let’s see just how far towards an observable cluster we can get in 45 minutes!

This talk should help you to:
- Determine what your observability priorities should be in your specific situation.
- Get started on implementing some of your own observability needs.

A story of Knative and Cloud Run and why it helps to reverse the way you think about them. I'll show what Knative is, what Cloud Run is and how they fit in the Kubernetes and serverless landscape.
