Kubernetes is a powerful tool that is becoming more popular every day. And if you’d like to have an easier time using Kubernetes, you should consider Kubernetes Operators. Kubernetes Operators are software extensions that allow developers to extend Kubernetes functionality and create, access, and manage applications.

In this talk, we will walk through what Operators are and how they can help make deploying and managing Kubernetes applications easier. And we’ll explore why we at Mattermost built our own Kubernetes Operator, what it does, and how it makes deploying and managing applications like Mattermost's open source messaging platform easy.
