Keynote: Pipeline as Code Empowering Cloud-Native CI/CD on Kubernetes Using Open Source Tools - Christian Hernandez, Red Hat
The pipeline-as-code approach allows git workflows to automate the deployment of CI/CD pipelines, turning code into features faster and at a more secure pace for business. This approach means developers continue to focus on developing and contributing code as they always have, through git repositories, and helps traditional operations teams evolve into their desired SRE or DevOps engineer roles they’ve aspired to become. Kubernetes has provided a platform to integrate all of these tasks and desired tools along the way.

We’ll demonstrate how to fully integrate git repositories, pipelines, and CD frameworks on top of OpenShift to deliver a complete, declarative, pipeline as code and GitOps framework in a cloud-native environment.

Keynote: Creating the Enterprise App Store - Alexis Richardson, Weaveworks
Enterprises have missed the “app store moment” largely because each organization has been running their own infrastructure for the past decades. With the adoption of Containers which provides the next level of abstraction to encapsulate applications, we are closer to the app store ideal, but it's really Kubernetes that adds the security and management that will finally turn enterprise software into an asset. Companies want to use the same core platform everywhere so they can focus on "the same skillset, the same tools, the same way of thinking, but not the same data centers." GitOps delivers certain standardization for that core platform – so the most important asset, people, can now focus on the delivery of applications.

Keynote: Declaring Complexity - Emily Freeman, Amazon
Broadly speaking, GitOps is a way of declaring the desired state of a system. But more than that, it's a way of capturing complexity in a way that the human brain can conceptualize. This talk focuses on the importance of tech developing ways of obfuscating convolution while not exaggerating simplicity.
