Develop operators to make your applications self-managing in Kubernetes and OpenShift

This session teaches how to develop an operator for your application, especially a stateful workload, to make it able to manage itself: install itself, upgrade to a new release, recover from failures, monitor itself, and autoscale. In short, operators can automate the work that site reliability engineers (SREs) call toil. If a customer installs your service in their hybrid cloud environment, their operations team doesn’t want to manage it, they want it to manage itself.
