Edge Computing is about distributing computational power and data storage wherever needed. From a developer’s perspective, the whole point is to bring cloud-native tools and techniques outside the data center. Naturally, this includes Kubernetes. But is Kubernetes needed on the Edge? Or rather, do *you* need Kubernetes for your project? Many of the leading Edge platforms available right now can orchestrate applications and services independently. On the other hand, others integrate with Kubernetes or are directly based on it. Which one is the right approach for you? In this session, you will learn how to answer this question through examples related to industrial automation, artificial intelligence, and connected vehicles.
