Last month's v2.9.0 release of Workflow included officially transitioning over to Kubernetes Helm. Here we look at how our CI system assembles the Workflow chart, which is itself an "umbrella" chart consisting of sub-charts for each of its core components.Read More
Tag: Community Meeting
Welcome to the last Deis Community meeting of 2016! We've had a busy year. Together, we finished moving Workflow from CoreOS Linux + Fleet to Kubernetes, shipped a stable Kubernetes Helm, have started working towards a Kubernetes-native service broker in Steward, and launched our full portfolio of service and support options for Kubernetes.
Paired with the explosion of Kubernetes over the last year, the Deis mission has never been more exciting:
- Deis Workflow: The best way to manage 12-factor applications on Kubernetes
- Helm: The best way to manage Kubernetes-native applications
- Steward: The best way to find, provision and use on and off-cluster services
In short, Deis open source projects make Kubernetes easy to use.
Focusing on Workflow, let's take a closer look at what the last month has brought us:Read More
Helm Nearing Stable Release
The Helm community is fast approaching a stable release. With two Release Candidates out in the wild as well as growing momentum around folks authoring charts, we couldn't be more excited!
Workflow 2.8 Release Review
Now that the Helm project is cutting Release Candidates it is time to start the migration process from Helm Classic to Helm 2.0. The Workflow team is now cutting experimental charts for Workflow using Helm 2.0! To try out these new charts, head over to the installation documentation. The Workflow team will be working on a migration path for Helm Classic to Helm 2.0 in the upcoming releases.Read More
Happy Halloween! Time for another Deis Workflow team update!

We are excited by the growth of the Deis community! Our slack channel is brimming with great folks and we'd love to set the stage for everyone to show off their hard work. If you are interested in a quick five or ten minute spot at the next meeting reach out to @sgoings or @jhansen on our community slack.
We've continued to move quickly and shipped Workflow 2.5 and 2.6 in the last month. I gave a quick release review, check out the release blog posts for more details:Read More
Stop, demo time!
This month we had two demos from Deis engineers. First, Aaron Schlessinger showed off megaboom which we use to stress our the Workflow logging subsystem.
Second, Helgi Þorbjörnsson showed off Workflow deploying applications with Kubernetes Deployments. We are planning on making this the default strategy in Workflow 2.4.

A rolling stone gathers no moss! Another month, another community meeting!
This month we were joined by Josh Mize from Mozilla who gave us a wonderful update on how Mozilla is using Deis v1 in production.
Additionally, Michelle Noorali from the Helm team gave a wonderful demo of the Helm Alpha 1 release. Unfortunately due to computers, that portion of the meeting was lost to "video rendering error 10008." Not all is lost however; we made the necessary sacrifices to the lords of computation and re-recorded the demo!
Matt Boersma gave a maintenance update for Deis v1 PaaS and I gave a quick update about Deis Workflow release status. Spoiler alert, we're really close (super close).
Until Next Time
Our next community meeting will be July 7th, 2016. If you like calendar reminders, this would be your jam.
See everyone next month!
