Production-ready Flask & Django apps on Kubernetes
Speaker: Jamie Hewland
Track: Infrastructure / DevOps
Time: Oct 11 (Fri), 14:15
This talk will explain how to host Flask, Django, and other WSGI web applications on Kubernetes, making effective use of the available abstractions.
Topics covered will include:
- Some of the benefits of running Flask & Django applications as part of a Service-oriented architecture (SOA) on Kubernetes.
- How the abstractions Kubernetes provides can be used to replace or integrate with existing well-known tools.
- General best practices for running Python web applications on Kubernetes.
- Reflections on some of the widely-used Python tools for running web applications and how well they suit modern containerised deployments.
Some basic familiarity with Docker containers as well as either Flask, Django, or similar Python-based web frameworks will be helpful. The talk is aimed at people interested in migrating their existing applications to Kubernetes.
