The Tekton open source project is a Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery pipeline technology built on Kubernetes. It enables you to build a flexible delivery validation and delivery pipeline while taking advantage of a scalable and container-based cluster manager. This talk will introduce you to Tekton and help you learn its different components. Through live demos you will learn how to setup your own Kubernetes-based CI/CD pipeline with Tekton.
James Ward is a nerd / software developer who shares what he learns with others though presentations, blogs, demos, and code. After over two decades of professional programming, he is now a self-proclaimed Typed Pure Functional Programming zealot but often compromises on his ideals to just get stuff done. After spending too many sleepless nights in data centers repairing RAID arrays, he now prefers higher-level cloud abstractions with appropriate escape hatches. James is a huge Open Source proponent, hoping to never get burned by lock-in again.
