Deploying a simple Python app to Kubernetes/OpenShift

JJ will walk you through deploying a simple python application to Kubernetes/OpenShift. We’ll start from the ground up, then get a complete automated build. The goal is to enable your developers to focus on code, not the infrastructure! It’s a chance to see the power of OpenShift and why taking the time to learn cloud-native development can get you the velocity you need.

JJ works as a Developer Advocate representing the IBM Cloud all over the world. He mainly focuses on the IBM Kubernetes Service and OpenShift trying to make companies and users have a successful onboarding to the Cloud Native ecosystem. He’s also been known in the DevOps tooling ecosystem and generalized Linux communities. If he isn’t building automation to make his work streamlined he’s building the groundwork to do just that.

He lives and grew up in Austin, Texas. A father and husband, trying to learn to balance his natural nerdiness with family life. He enjoys a good strong dark ale, hoppy IPA, some team building Artemis, and epic Gloomhaven campaigning.

He has recently dove headfirst into Fedora since IBM buying Redhat, but still secretly wants FreeBSD everywhere. He’s always trying to become a better web technology developer, though normally just uses bash to get the job done.
