Migrating to Kubernetes, experiences from the trenches 

In today's world, accelerating time to market is crucial. This is especially true in the field of e-commerce, where competition is fierce and being first in implementing new ideas is a key factor to success. But, how do you actually achieve this? Moving towards a dynamic infrastructure is required to autonomously provision resources for new workloads and to scale resources to meet changing demands.

Nowadays there are so many solutions available which promise you the moon, yet in reality things are always turn out to be more nuanced and complicated. In this talk, we will focus on the current market leader in management of containerized applications provided by Google, Kubernetes. We are going to share our journey migrating to Kubernetes at de Bijenkorf, what we are proud of, and the lessons we learned.
