The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Automators

The Building Blocks of DX: K8s Evolution from CLI to GitOps

Katie Gamanji

Cloud Platform Engineer, American Express

Kubernetes has become the default container orchestrator framework, setting the standards for application deployment in a distributed architecture. Wider adaptability of the tool prompted the diversification of the end-user base, and a consistent DX for cluster interaction became essential for Kubernetes. The community channeled herculean efforts towards the enhancement of developer experience, by extending the cluster CLI, building portals and highly-responsive UIs. This talk will focus on the cluster interaction chronicles, showcasing tools and add-ons which contributed to a wider adoption for Kubernetes. An emphasis will be place on kubectl plugins and cluster state managers using mechanisms such as GitOps, ClickOps and even SheetOps.
