#40 KubeCon Week & 1 year in cloud native

Welcome beautiful people,

this is a special newsletter. First of all, last week (the 12th) marks exactly one year since I got started in the cloud native ecosystem.

Secondly, IT WAS KUBECON WEEK!! Therefore, I will just focus this newsletter on some talks and projects that you should check out.

Also, I just want to give a HUUUUGE shout out to this amazing community! Thank you for supporting me throughout the past year — the Ambassador of the year award was just made possible through all of you ❤️
