Orchestrating containers with Kubernetes providing applications in a reproducible, efficient and encapsulated manner are central challenges in software projects. In this context, the so-called containerization technology and methodology is crystallizing as a leading solution for modern infrastructure landscapes as well as distributed software architecture. This leads to the topic of orchestration, where Kubernetes has established itself as a quasi-standard, which underlies almost all of today's container platforms. It is therefore not only a matter of packing applications into containers, but also to automatically combine them with the appropriate rules and mechanisms in a suitable composition. How has today's software and system engineering moved into containerization, where do we find it in use, what are the challenges and how is Kubernetes hands on tackling them?
Jonas Felix has been actively involved in software and system development since the 90s. In the 2000s, he founded and developed one of the first social business networking platforms (similar to LinkedIn), and built a leading software company in its field, which he successfully sold in 2016 as a major shareholder. Since then, he has continued to participate in ventures as an investor, co-founder or strategic advisor. However, his heart is and remains in hands-on development, which is the reason he is also running the software and system engineering course provider letsboot.ch, where he regularly teaches courses.
