Everybody loves failure stories, but maybe for the wrong reasons: Schadenfreude and Internet comment threads are the dark side; continuous improvement through blameless postmortems, sharing incidents, and documenting learnings is what motivated me to compile the list of Kubernetes Failure Stories. Kubernetes gives us a infrastructure platform to talk in the same "language" and foster collaboration across organizations.

In this talk, I will walk you through our horror stories of operating 100+ clusters and share the insights we gained from incidents, failures, user reports and general observations. I will highlight why Kubernetes makes sense despite its perceived complexity. Our failure stories will be sourced from recent and past incidents, so the talk will be up-to-date with our latest experiences.
