The cloud native ecosystem is built of composable projects that can be stacked, recombined, reused, and built upon. This composability allows cloud native developers to iterate and ship functionality fast and creates compounding value to businesses from telcos to machine learning to gaming. This talk will trace the history of composability within the cloud native landscape from making Kubernetes pluggable and extensible through the CNI and CRI to standardizing observability with Prometheus and OTel to eBPF making security and networking composable with Cilium. Along the way we will discover how each interface and extension built the value of the project and the ecosystem as a whole creating a learning and business value flywheel. The audience will learn how the composability of cloud native has helped grow the public cloud, generated many successful startups, given meaningful careers to a wide variety of people, and why buying into composable ecosystems compounds business value.
