With Cloud Native never build your application, just Continuously Integrate
Kamesh Sampath

Over the past few years, lots of organizations have started to adopt Cloud Native architectures. Despite the adoption of Cloud Native architectures many companies haven’t achieved optimal results. Wondering why? One of the reasons is our adherence to traditional ways of building and deploying applications.

Kubernetes has become the de facto Cloud Native deployment platform. It offers radically easy scaling and fault tolerance. Despite this, not many CI systems utilize the benefits of kubernetes. None of the existing build system offers the capabilities that are native to Kubernetes like in-cluster building, leveraging underlying security and access control etc.,

In this session we will explore an Open Source project Drone -- a cloud native self-service Continuous Integration platform -- . Though 10 years old, Drone offers a mature, Kubernetes based CI system harnessing the scaling and fault tolerance characteristics of Cloud Native architectures.
