Join us for an insightful session as we delve into the intricacies of software packaging and distribution in Kubernetes environments. Discover the critical need for robust tools and techniques that streamline this complex process, ensuring efficiency and reliability at every stage.Attendees will gain insights into the challenges posed by dependency management, handling environment-specific configurations, and ensuring consistent deployments across different Kubernetes clusters.We will introduce the Cloud Native Computing Foundation Sandbox Project, Carvel, as a powerful framework that addresses these challenges. Carvel offers a comprehensive suite of tools (imgpkg, kapp, kapp-controller, kbld, kctrl, secretgren-controller, vendir, and ytt) designed to simplify software packaging, configuration management, and application deployment processes. We will explore distinct use cases: edge deployments, air-gapped environments, and B2B/B2C distribution. We will share real-world examples and best practices, empowering attendees to leverage Carvel for streamlined and reliable deployments in Kubernetes.
