The presentation covers the recent updates in Operator Framework, particularly the Operator SDK CLI, and the addition of Java-based operator support. The talk also mentions the Hybrid-Helm feature and external bundle validation.
- Operator Framework is an open-source toolkit to create and manage operators
- Operator SDK now supports Java-based operator development
- Hybrid-Helm feature allows adding custom logic to a Helm operator
- External bundle validation is being added to Operator SDK
- Phase two plugins are being added to Cube Builder and SDK
The addition of Java-based operator support was motivated by the popularity of Java among enterprise developers. The Operator SDK team aims to meet developers where they are most comfortable. This approach was also taken with the addition of Ansible and Helm support.
