Docker images are the deployment artifacts in modern platforms (Kubernetes, Cloud Run, etc). There are a number of ways to create those images from source:
docker build, the Jib Maven & Gradle plugin, or Cloud Native Buildpacks. This session will provide an overview of the different methods and compare them to help you understand which you should use.
Over the past several years Google has open sourced several cloud-native technologies abstracting away more and more underlying infrastructure into well-defined processes that can work across different environments. Kubernetes and Istio provide cluster primitives for scheduling and networking. Knative is a serverless platform built on Kubernetes and Istio and higher-level deployment, serving, and eventing. In this workshop you will get hands-on with Knative. You will learn the different features of Knative by using them in Java with Spring Boot.
