Kubernetes Config Management Landscape
2021-02-06, 11:30–12:00, D.infra

“We are all YAML engineers now” as Bob Walker said in 2018 in Ghent. So we now need something to manage these millions of lines of YAML.

There’s the “Kubernetes application management tools” list by Bryan Grant with over 120 tool aiming at config management for Kubernetes. This area is evolving fast, and as k8s users we need some guidance to make informed decisions on what to use.

In this talk I’ll describe the problem I need to solve and take a look into what we can learn from the previous generation of cfg mgmt tools. Then, will show some of the new tools and methods. Will not go into details of each solution, but rather compare different approaches and discuss which is good for specific needs.

In a 30-minute talk it makes sense to talk about no more than a handful of tools. Will look into those that are more popular or growing fast.
