At Airbnb today, our infrastructure supports thousands of production microservices. We expect developers to be able to create, configure, and operate their own services. But how do you solve configuration challenges for a thousand developers?

We’ve created a framework where all configuration can be stored alongside project code: everything from service orchestration, service discovery, secrets, cloud computing configuration, CI/CD, and more. Developers should only specify the minimal configuration, and boilerplate is reduced with generators and templated files.

Out-of-the-box CLI tools like kubectl are too verbose and unwieldy for service owners, so we created a lightweight wrapper for common operations.

Finally, we will go over how we use Kubernetes to solve common problems such as graceful degradation, AZ balancing, and more.
