Gateway API: Basics, Nuance, and the Real World


A Kubernetes computer is supposed to house all of our apps!
That's awesome, but how do we expose them to the people who need them?

We used to use the Ingress API for this and largely still do.
However, we have a new way to shape traffic that is both more extensible and more collaborative!

Gateway API is an improved approach that allows cluster operators and application owners to own the pieces and policies they need to route traffic to applications.

In this session, you'll learn the basics of Gateway API.
What are the resources and how are they used together in practice?
Can we mix implementations from different providers?
What considerations should we make to deploy with zero downtime?
We will cover these topics.

In addition, you can also expect a live demo and some *performance art*!

Expect to leave better equipped to support the transparent, collaborative, self-service ownership of a DevOps culture.
