Show Notes
Topic 1 - Where do you see Kubernetes today in terms of maturity, breadth of capabilities, ease of use, etc.? Topic 2 - How is Google's Engineering structured to manage GKE/GCP services, open source contributions and partner engagements? Topic 3 - What are some of the common use-cases with GKE usage? Do you also track Kubernetes usage on GCP services to see where you need to expand/improve GKE? Topic 4 - Is Kubernetes easy enough, or robust enough for developers today? If not, where does it need to expand? Should this be within Kubernetes, or in other areas like Istio (or other)? Topic 5 - How do you see Kubernetes Federation evolving? What might be possible for end-customers over time? Feedback?
