The presentation discusses the use of Pixie and Kubernetes in DevOps to improve pipeline management and prevent production app failures.
- Pixie and Kubernetes can be used to extract traffic data and generate curl scripts for testing and load testing.
- GitHub actions can be used to automate the deployment of services and run curl commands against them to prevent production app failures.
- Pixie and Kubernetes can also be used to monitor and optimize service performance.
- The presentation provides anecdotes and examples to illustrate the use of Pixie and Kubernetes in DevOps.
The presenter discusses a scenario where a developer makes a minor change to the API without understanding how it works, causing the production app to break. By using Pixie and Kubernetes to generate curl scripts and automate deployment, the pipeline can be managed more effectively and production app failures can be prevented.
