25 Minute Talk Infrastructure


Jon Seager


In this talk, I'll outline some of the work that the Juju team has been doing over the last year to slim Juju down and get it in shape to power the next decade of software operations.

We'll also take a look at some of the work that Canonical is powering internally to develop a suite of robust Data Platform, Observability, Machine Learning and Identity workloads that can be composed to deliver solutions to a huge problem space. To get where we are today, we've had to work hard on our tech, documentation, developer tooling and community which we'll take a look at in detail.

Finally, a look to the future: what are we planning for Juju and the ecosystem over the next year, and what should you be excited about?
