For years, developers and architects have driven the business forward with codified infrastructure tools and automated pipelines that deliver superhuman results. You have accelerated digital transformation with Kubernetes and microservices; now it’s time to complete the vision by stitching clouds, architectures and APIs together to achieve end-to-end connectivity for the modern enterprise.
Kong Summit 2021 will give you the tools to build new ideas, create actionable best practices and get hands-on with guiding your organization through transformation, delivering exciting innovation and securing connectivity all the way to the edge.
We’re proud to announce that this year’s Kong Summit will be a hybrid event with the option to attend in person or digitally. We believe in a world where hybrid experiences will be a cornerstone of innovation, and we’re excited to provide that flexibility to our customers, community members, and industry peers!
API and Microservices: DevOps to APIOps designed to Connect
What are we seeing in the world of APIs, integration and low code? Why is the developer and on up to the organization’s experiences equally important? DevOps would not exist without microservices, and business value would not exist without APIs and collaboration among key stakeholders.

Progressive Delivery in Kubernetes without Service Meshes
Will a new version of my service drive more traffic? Will it increase the overall latency of my application? Can I test it in production for a set of users first? Progressive delivery, A/B testing or canary deployments are strategies that help answer those questions by splitting and shifting network traffic in a controlled manner.
Finally, we’ll introduce the Kubernetes Gateway API, a new extension to the Kubernetes API to standardize the different service networking implementations.

Turning Infrastructure Into Software Through Cloud Engineering
In this talk, I will demonstrate why defining infrastructure in general programming languages is a better choice for infrastructure management. From defining resources to testing and validation, software engineering processes and best practices can be applied to cloud infrastructure to help teams to ship faster.

Extending Kong via Custom Plugins: Cargill's experience with Lua and Go
As part of Cargill’s API Platform, we support multiple Identity Providers in support of our API development community. Each IdP supports varying portions of the OIDC specification. To provide a consistent developer experience, Cargill created a solution to manage the revocation of access tokens using APIs fronted by the Kong API Gateway and a plugin to check on the revocation status. Join Colin and Rob as they share their journey and experience implementing their own plugin (developed in both Golang and Lua) within Kong. Live demonstration included.
