At Hootsuite we have been seeing hyper growth since 2013 with over 12 million users now. In order to support this growth we are also building a great engineering team, but that isn't enough. We had to work extra hard to make software delivery easy and fast for our developers. We ship 15+ releases a day on our main dashboard application and we do more releases on our 20+ microservices. We also created our own internal PaaS to support experiments and rapid prototyping to deliver customer value quickly.
In this talk we will cover how at Hootsuite we can deliver a microservice into production in under 5 minutes. How we leverage Kubernetes and Deis to give our developers the best experience when it comes to delivering services and features to production. Why are platforms like Kubernetes are important for a company's technology growth and give back the power to developers to create amazing technology really easily.
For the demo portion of the session we will generate an example Hootsuite service and watch it deploy to production environment in under 5 minutes. We will cover the following:
Kubernetes as a microservices platform
