"This year's sponsors and speakers have achieved significant levels of performance and we are honored to provide a platform for them to showcase the latest on continuous delivery leveraging Spinnaker."
The conference agenda features an impressive lineup of keynote presentations and breakout sessions organized across a variety of topics including product deep-dives, case studies and more. On November 15, Armory will host "Spinnaker 101" and "Spinnaker 102," comprehensive educational sessions that will cover everything from Spinnaker basics to unlocking its full power. Also of note are breakout sessions that will provide product insight and achieving success with Spinnaker, such as "Monitoring Spinnaker with Prometheus Operator on GKE," with Miles Matthias, Google cloud consultant, on Saturday, November 16.
Created by Netflix, Spinnaker is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence. Also used by Google, Armory, Adobe, Waze, and other digital leaders, Spinnaker combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers; it has been battle-tested in production by hundreds of teams over millions of deployments.
For companies like Waze that host production in multi-cloud environments, Spinnaker allows them to release new features and bug fixes to users as quickly as possible, while keeping deployments and rollbacks simple, easy and reliable, according to a public case study. Spinnaker abstracts many of the particulars of each cloud provider, allowing developers to focus on making Waze even better for users instead of concerning themselves with the low-level details of multiple cloud providers.
