This talk will take Kubernetes users from “zero to hero” with Cloud Foundry. Kubernetes is fantastic, but since you are at CF Summit you are probably tempted by the Cloud Foundry promise of letting you “just push code” and not worry about the details of containers, and scheduling, and scaling. But Cloud Foundry does still have a learning curve -- this talk is here to help you over it!

Kubernetes is meant to be used by operators, not developers. Developers shouldn’t need to care about the inner workings of Kubernetes such as Pods, Services, StatefulSets, Ingresses and how to use and configure them just to get their application running, right? This is where Cloud Foundry comes in.

In this talk, we will explore what Kubernetes users need to know when using Cloud Foundry. We’ll get familiar with CF's own container scheduler -Diego- and its differences with Kubernetes. We will also look at how, using Eirini, you can get up and running with CF on your existing Kubernetes cluster with a couple of helm installs. And we’ll compare, hands-on, the effort it takes to bring up an application from scratch in both Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes and see it running in the cloud!
