We are at the cusp of the golden age of cloud computing: now, more than ever, organizations have a wealth of options to choose from to build their services on top of, to accelerate their time-to-market, and operate their software on the global stage. But isn’t the deluge of three-letter-acronymed services hard to keep track of? Isn’t it painful to stitch together these things into a single, coherent platform–one solid enough to power your business, reliable enough to run, one that can withstand the sands of time?

Learn how to use Crossplane to usher in that golden age for you. In this talk we will discuss:

  • How to use Crossplane as the framework to build your cloud platform and never, ever re-architect again
  • How Crossplane has built on top of the battle-tested Kubernetes architecture to offer a framework that allows organizations to stitch together their own tailored view of the cloud
  • Helpful tips and tricks for running Crossplane
  • Road bumps and considerations for running Crossplane in production
