The PaaS application deployment model innovated by abstracting away the infrastructure layer and pioneered production deployments from version control – but at a cost of portability, and flexibility. This talk covers how to wire up Kubernetes to get the best elements of a PaaS like push-to-deploy, and infrastructure abstraction, while gaining the flexibility, portability and interoperability that Kubernetes offers.

Topics covered will include ways to use Kubernetes without needing to be on-call (no more 3am phone calls!), and why it makes sense to start with Kubernetes, even for early-stage products using a single-node cluster. This presentation isn't about running a PaaS on Kubernetes or hiding the Kubernetes API from application developers, it's is about applying the best elements from the PaaS pattern, while keeping all the innovations and flexibility of Kubernetes.
