Leveraging Kubernetes as a Tester

[presentation]
by
Glenn Buckholz
Summary: 

Kubernetes is one of the fastest growing open source projects in history, and it's taking the DevOps world by storm. With so many resources being poured into this technology, it would be nice if there were some benefits for testing. It may seem that the Kubernetes framework revolves around operations and microservices, but with a little know-how, we can leverage the internet excitement around the project to enhance our own automated testing frameworks. Glenn Buckholz will demonstrate how, with just a little bit of knowledge about Docker and Git, an automated testing team can leverage Kubernetes to keep up with the rapid pace of software development. Glenn will show how Kubernetes allows for testing multiple versions of an application in parallel and with minimal effort. With so much going on at once, we need to know how to structure tests so that we can keep the concurrent testing activities organized using Git and annotations. Glenn will discuss how to keep our testing results safe, organized, and accessible in the ephemeral world of Docker.
