Web UIs have the potential to both make experienced cluster administrators' jobs easier and help drive adoption of cloud-native technologies. So how do we build these interfaces?

Kate will share what is needed to design and build user interfaces to make Kubernetes concepts more accessible to all experience levels. She will talk about how frontend engineers and designers can first ramp up on Kubernetes, so they understand the problem space. Once a product team is equipped with the knowledge to build tools, their next task is to define the problems that can be solved with a UI, and the ones that cannot. She will highlight the work her team at Heptio has done on Sonobuoy Scanner, a UI for running CNCF conformance tests, and other Heptio tools in the making. Lastly, she will speak to what problems (with potential UI solutions) still exist, and how we can work together to solve them.
