New Highlights of Application Management at KubeCon EU 2019

As we all know, the central project for cloud native architectures is Kubernetes, which focuses on applications. Better application deployment and more efficient development can bring tangible benefits to teams and organizations and utilize the cloud-native technology better. The momentum of revolution not only challenges old and closed internal systems, but also facilitates the emergence of new tools for developers. At this KubeCon, lots of new knowledge about application management was disclosed. What ideas and train of thought can we learn from this KubeCon to avoid detours? What technology evolution trend do these ideas indicate?

In this article, we invited Deng Hongchao, a technical expert on Alibaba Cloud Container Platform, former engineer at CoreOS, and one of the core authors of the k8s Operator project, to analyze and comment on some important aspects of application management.
