What you'll learn

  • Explore Spinnaker, a multicloud, open source continuous delivery platform
  • Learn how to build flexible architectures and products (and a little about continuous delivery and cloud providers)


Andrew Glover shares the technical aspects of multicloud, open source continuous delivery platform Spinnaker, a collaboration between Netflix, Google, Microsoft, and others. The flexible platform supports strong integrations with AWS, GCP, Kubernetes, Azure, Cloud Foundry, and OpenStack, and companies around the globe, both large and small, are leveraging Spinnaker and its core concept of immutable infrastructure as means for rapidly and reliably deploying software assets.

Andrew explores Spinnaker’s core feature of orchestrated deployments to public clouds, the best practices associated with multicloud delivery, and the myriad lessons learned that are applicable to scalable and reliable global deployments to any cloud. Along the way, Andrew covers how Spinnaker was built to support multiple cloud environments and how the integrations work in practice. But it’s not all technical. Join Andrew to learn the practical issues of collaborating across companies and how the OSS community has benefited from this collaboration.
