Everything that is wrong with ci/cd

CI/CD tools today do not support proper devops collaboration. They are not composable, there's no way to manage permissions that according to the personas and there's no easy way to enforce policy for security or best practices.

Container Images as witchcraft

In this talk I will talk about cloud native build backs - it's advantages over building container images with dockerfiles.
How to use it and how it's possible to customize it's behavior when required.

Back to the future: Service Mesh for Legacy Software

Got legacy software on Virtual Machines or Bare Metal on-prem or in cloud, maybe even Windows OS? Many of the developers who wrote it left the company? Probably code changes are avoided, security or MTLS are out of the question, and forget about circuit breaking. Despite Service Mesh and Kubernetes are obvious couple, it's actually a great fit for your legacy VMs, you can have modern software development patterns and operations practices without changing your code today (or next week).

Boundary inside Consul Service Mesh

Boundary should protect human to machine communication. Consul should protect machine to machine communication but what happens when human need to access resource inside of a mesh. In this session I will share why and most importantly how you can do this.

you MUST build custom split mechanical keyboard

"This is my keyboard. There are many like it, but this one is mine."
Current standard (even mechanical ) 105 keys keyboard are remnants of evolution, they are useless like your ability to move ears.
Let me show the world of custom split mechanical keyboard that you can build and program yourself to improve your wrist health, improve efficiency and really standout in the crowd (e.g openspaxce ).

My Terraform is better than your Helm

Are you using Heml to deploy to Kubernetes? or maybe Kustomize or Carvel ( if you're awesome and brave ) ?

Let's talk about Terraform and Kubernetes - I believe you can achieve more with terraform than any other templating/deployment tools.
I will talk about:
- Why you should consider using Terraform for you Kubernetes.
- We'll see examples and use cases.
- How (hopefully) it can be improved in the future.
