Cloud native application development has now become the norm. As a result, every developer is becoming a cloud native app developer. They are becoming masters of not only programming languages, but also distributed primitives/abstractions offered by containers, Kubernetes, and serverless frameworks. Effectively leveraging platforms such as Kubernetes can be a daunting task for developers due to many reasons, including managing hundreds of lines of YAML configuration.

Programming languages, frameworks, and tools that abstract away the complexities faced by developers are on the rise. They are collectively called the languages of infrastructure. In this session, I will explore two such tools -- Pulumi and Ballerina. Let’s explore how these languages of infrastructure hide the complexities of cloud native platforms and boost developer productivity.
