Anjana Fernando
WSO2, Director of Developer Relations

Anjana is a Director of Developer Relations at WSO2. He has built up the expertise in data analytics and enterprise integration by leading several products at WSO2. He has also helped numerous customers in implementing their integration strategies. His latest venture is his role in the Ballerina project, where he has been involved extensively in the design and implementation of the language and its runtime, and now primarily works on its ecosystem engineering and evangelism activities. Anjana presents frequently in events, such as DevOps Pro, ApacheCon, API World, WSO2Con, KubeCon, BallerinaCon, DeveloperWeek, and many tech meetups. He is also the author of the very first Ballerina book: https://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Ballerina-Programming-Novice-Professional/dp/1484251385/.


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.
