Shall We Play a Game? Modernizing WarGames Using Cloud-Native Technologies


The '80s and '90s saw a number of classic, and often times unintentionally hilarious, computer hacker movies. Sneakers, Hackers, Swordfish, and many others portray an imaginative -- and largely inaccurate -- view of how computers actually work.

What would these worlds of modems and mainframes look like today? This session demonstrates the benefits of taking a cloud-native approach to designing applications in the context of the technologies portrayed in the movie WarGames. Through a series of demos, attendees will learn how to deploy container-native applications and use Kubernetes Operators to dynamically scale the application infrastructure according to growing user demands.
