Seth will cover common misconceptions and dispel myths around the usage of managed Kubernetes services. Without focus on specific services in particular, more of a push towards acceptance of managed services, especially if you're an engineer or leader that is considering Kubernetes but don't know how to get started. When discussing a managed Kubernetes service, responses have range from “why?” or “managed services aren’t as powerful” or the all too common reference to "vendor lock in" - often leaving those on the receiving end with a feeling of being lesser. Viewers will walk away from this session with more acceptance of managed services, and realize that using a managed service doesn't make one a bad engineer. There are many benefits to be had adoption of Kubernetes, and it's not a contest to prove how much you can build. If you have a small team and want to use Kubernetes, then a managed service can be the first step or only step towards Kubernetes usage.
