Talk: Building Kubernetes with LinuxKit – Justin Cormack (https://twitter.com/justincormack)

…a minimal immutable OS for running Kubernetes. LinuxKit is a toolkit for building minimal Linux operating systems that Docker released as open source earlier this year. It is built with CNCF projects, including containerd, and with standard Kubernetes components such as kubeadm.

What people want to build on minimal operating systems is of course Kubernetes and we and the community have been working on this. In this talk we look at how LinuxKit works, how to build Kubernetes with it. We also will give a preview of the Docker Desktop Kubernetes integration that is built using LinuxKit.

Ligthtning Talk: Prometheus Alert Manager & Remote Storage Adapters – Lee Calcote (http://twitter.com/lcalcote)

An overview of how Prometheus alert manager and remote storage works. We’ll talk about why we’re harnessing the power of Prometheus and integrating it as as an open-source monitoring solution with SolarWinds AppOptics as a monitoring service offering.

  • “Thanks for keeping me updated on the progress of the interview process. That means more to your candidates than you realize and engenders loyalty and credibility. It’s professional, and already you stand head and shoulders above 99% of the recruiters with whom I speak.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “I have really enjoyed working with my Recruiting Consultant at Technology Navigators. He has by far had the most open and easy to work with demeanor out of the numerous recruiters I’ve talked to. His attitude is refreshing in this business! I plan to continue working with Technology Navigators in the future, whether it is to find another gig in Austin or elsewhere.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “I’ve hired technical staff through Technology Navigators at several companies over the last 5 years and the team has consistently provided high quality personnel with the specific technical and value backgrounds to fit seamlessly into my organizations. They maintain high levels of communication with staff they have placed, as well as hiring managers long after placements have started. I highly recommend Technology Navigators!”

    - Director of IT, Software in Austin, TX
  • “I appreciated getting to know my recruiter and getting to know more about the interview process. It was the first time I have felt that a recruiter was partnering with me instead of me just being a potential placement.”

    - Lead Software Engineer in Austin, TX
  • “The whole team at Technology Navigators played a big part in getting me my new job. I particularly appreciate my Recruiting Consultant, who was very helpful in every possible way starting from setting up the interview, making sure I was there on time for onsite interviews, following up after interview, getting feedback etc. He worked with me until I got the offer. I will definitely let Technology Navigators know if my friends are looking for job.”

    - Software QA Engineer in Austin, TX

    - Vice President Product Engineering, Cloud Computing in Austin, TX
  • “Best. Recruiter. Ever. Hands Down.”

They are the first people I turn to when I need to make a tough hire.”

    - Chief Technology Officer, Software in Austin, TX
  • “I first started working with Technology Navigators several years ago. Back then I did not have many hiring needs. However, Technology Navigators stayed in touch on a regular basis. When I moved to another company with a large number of open positions, I immediately called them. They were able to quickly find outstanding technical applicants to fill our positions. I have continued my relationship with Technology Navigators, and it is a great feeling to know that I can always count on them to provide highly qualified people anytime, and many times with very short notice.”

    - Software Development Manager in Austin, TX
  • “I’ve been working with Technology Navigators for a decade because they save me time and money by providing me with the best candidates in the shortest amount of time. After working with Technology Navigators for ten years, I asked them and sixteen other agencies from Austin and around the country to help us recruit five Java stars. We hired three from Technology Navigators.”

    - Software Development Manager in Austin, TX
  • “The Technology Navigators team has done an amazing job.  I have worked with many Rock Star firms and they have outperformed every one of them!  We have been blown away by the top notch candidates submitted and the short amount of time it has taken Technology Navigators to find them! Thank you.”

    - Hiring Manager, Data Warehousing in Austin, TX
  • “During my job search I worked with four recruiters and [Technology Navigators was] by far the most professional, friendly, and hard-working of them all. My recruiter had a great sense of humor that really put me at ease, and I got some great advice on interviewing. I enjoyed our face-to-face meeting; it really showed their interest in making the entire process go as smoothly as possible.”
