1KubeCon’s Europe 2018 Event Highlights Kubernetes’ Progress, Expansion
KubeCon and CloudNativeCon Europe 2018 ran from May 2-4 at the Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event showcased the latest developments in the cloud-native market, which has the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system at its core. Among the highlights of the event were multiple sessions on security, including an update on the latest security additions to Kubernetes and new projects including Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone (SPIFFE). Users also took to the stage to sing Kubernetes’ praises. Engineers from CERN detailed how they use Kubernetes at massive scale, and the Financial Times told how its move to Kubernetes improved operational efficiency. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the KubeCon and CloudNativeCon Europe 2018 event.

4Improving Security With SPIFFE
Andrew Jessup, co-founder of Scytale, used his time on the keynote stage to explain what the Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone (SPIFFE) is all about. SPIFFE goes beyond the application infrastructure that is provided by Kubernetes to enable a new framework for security application workload identity.
David Aronchick, product manager of Cloud AI and co-founder of the Kubeflow project, discussed at KubeCon the intersection of machine learning and Kubernetes. Kubeflow is a new effort that aims to make it easier for organizations to deploy and run machine learning frameworks in a Kubernetes cluster.
6Defining the Kubernetes Release Process
At the KubeCon and CloudNativeCon Europe 2018 event, Jaice Singer DuMars, OSS governance program manager, and Caleb Miles, technical program manager at Google, outlined the core process and activities of the Kubernetes Release Special Interest Group (SIG). Kubernetes has a three-month cycle for development spread across feature definition, feature work, bug fixing and final release stages.
