Google Cloud announces new GKE Autopilot...thoughts?

The product team rolled out the new GKE autopilot last week and I wanted to assess whether the community sees this as a big deal, about time, under the noise floor?  

We are working on building out some applications and infrastructure programming for the community and I wanted to test whether it was worth chasing down Drew and the GKE product team around this topic.

GKE Autopilot is the result of asking: What if we hid the nodes and focused on the workloads without sacrificing the Kubernetes API?

As I see it, using it is as if I’m hiring Google’s engineers to take care of my K8s. I will focus on my code and they will take care of my infrastructure.

Awesome, right? :grinning:

The german community is looking to host a meetup around google cloud infrastructure on March 11...perhaps we pull in a google product manager on this topic and have them present?

First I’ll connect with Karen. He’ll tell me the day and time they want to host it. After getting the details I’ll send a message to JJ and ask for Google's PM.

What do you think Jeff?

Sounds good. This is one of many different options for what we could fit in to support so i’ll let you guys hash it out :)

@JBranham @ilias If you can wrangle up anyone on short notice they can join in on the conversation today on Clubhouse: Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) Autopilot for Stateful Workloads

In addition to Miles Ward (SADA, Xoogler), Kelsey Hightower will also be joining from Google.

If someone isn’t on Clubhouse they can join the Meet event to listen in and participate: gcloud.at/meet

Oh no! I lost it! I have to do something with these time zones.

@larsen161 I wish I wasn’t sleeping. Is it recorded? Can you upload it here? I know a lot of people who want to hear about GKE Autopilot.

Except for C2C’s France community. Because @guillaume blaquiere & @antoine.castex are going to speak about it!
