Emanuil Tolev
Elastic, Community Engineer

Emanuil is a Community Engineer with Elastic, the company behind the open source Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, APM, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash). He's based in London. He used to be a freelance web developer + ops lead and ran a small open science web dev consultancy with partners for several years. Interested in mentorship, inclusion, small businesses, archery and always curious about how the world works in detail.


"Containers are the new ZIP format to distribute software" is a fitting description of today's development world. However, it is not always that easy and this talk highlights the development of Elastic's container strategy over time:

* Docker images: A new distribution model.
* Docker Compose: Local demos and a little more.
* Helm Chart: Going from demo to production.
* Kubernetes Operator: Full control with upgrades, scaling,...

Besides the strategy we are also discussing specific technical details and hurdles that appeared during the development. Or why the future will be a combination of Helm Chart and Operator (for now).
