Philips Hue is one of the leading global Internet of Things platforms and has integrations with Amazon Echo, Google Home, IFTTT & Nest to make your lights work for you. The platform has grown considerably during the past years and to accommodate this has been migrated towards Google Kubernetes Engine at the end of 2015.

In this session Mark will take you on an adventure into the Philips Hue architecture and show you what it takes to turn on a lightbulb in 2018. While doing so he will touch upon the many different google Cloud products being used and the reasons why. Finally he will explain how his team solved challenges like monitoring and Continuous Delivery with minimal impact for our millions of users.
