Over the past few years kubernetes developers have all been working hard to break up the kubernetes monorepo. Storage, networking, container runtimes and most recently cloud-providers are now independently developed in their own projects and repositories. Broadly, we’ve completed the technical code separation: mission accomplished. But have we made kubernetes harder to install, upgrade and operate? Do we still have the quality we had when there was one version of kubernetes, that was end-to-end tested on multiple clouds on every PR? Must a production-ready kubernetes distribution undo all our hard work and reassemble the monorepo? Join two kOps maintainers as they describe how kOps has tackled these issues - by necessity of maintaining a working kubernetes distribution. Learn how kOps maintainers collaborate with these new projects to help them build towards a coherent kubernetes. The speakers will share their visions of the component-based kubernetes distribution that we are all building, and open a discussion on how we should best build and test it. This won’t happen accidentally; the organizational work is at least as hard as the technical work. But together we can build a reliable and easy kubernetes experience, while allowing more choice and experimentation.
