DAPR, CNAB, Porter, OAM, RUDR- OMG! Demystifying cloud native app development and deployment tech

In recent years we've seen a huge uptake of cloud native technologies such as Docker & Kubernetes. In an effort to improve the development and deployment experience we've seen the release of a number of frameworks and specifications which aim to simplify developing and deploying applications which target platforms such as Kubernetes.

This talk will
- Explain what each of these acronyms are and the problem they are trying to address.
- Give the audience examples of where they can be used with some demos
- Which of these technologies work together to create an overall experience for developing and deploying applications.

After this talk the audience should have a much better understanding of the cloud native development/deployment landscape and where some of these technologies fit in.
