Gateway API has graduated to GA! In this session, we will share the journey it took to get here, highlighting the incredible story of what has likely been the most collaborative API development process in Kubernetes history, with over 150 contributors and 20 implementations already. This API also represents a fundamental shift in how Kubernetes APIs are developed. Although this may be the first CRD-based Kubernetes API to graduate to GA, there are already others in progress. We’ll talk about what this means for the future of Kubernetes, and the ecosystem as a whole. Finally, we’ll give an overview of the API, describing how it can be used for load balancing, in-cluster routing, and service mesh configuration. You’ll learn what it means for CRDs to be considered GA, and when, why, and how you can migrate to Gateway API if you’re not already using it.
