About the Presentation
Here in Vancouver, Andrew shared the 4 important stages to deploy distributed databases with Kubernetes with great emphasis on the Design stage.
- Release Management
Andrew did a fantastic job to deliver this technical presentation in a fun and interesting way by using real life references to demonstrate the 4 important stages.
He uses bricks and mortars to emphasize the importance of fundational work, the Mondadnock Building in Chicago as a building built solely by bricks to illustrate the importance of good management and operation, and finally to the empire state building in New York as a skyscraper build by bricks supported by steel frames to illustrate the importance of support and monitoring.
Overall, it is a very interesting meetup event.
