Fireside Chat w. Kris Nóva

Infrastructure as Software, Not Infrastructure as Code

60 mins

This Fireside Chat is best for:

  • Infrastructure Engineers
  • Systems Engineers
  • Systems Architects
  • DevOps

Join us for a Fireside Chat with Kris Nóva, Senior Principal Engineer at Twilio, for a discussion about treating your infrastructure as software, and the important differences between that and infrastructure as code. This will be an excellent talk about the fundamental differences between the two, and the benefits you get by treating your infrastructure as a system instead of just a definition for infrastructure automation.

Additionally, your attendance at the live Fireside Chat benefits The Privilege Escalation Foundation.

What You'll Learn:

  • How Kubernetes approaches problem solving and systems management
  • The advantages to applying modern software design with regard to infrastructure
  • Treating Cluster API as a system kernel
