#6 DevOps Diary: Recap of My First KubeCon

Hey everyone, I hope you have/are having a lovely day and Welcome to week 6 🥳

I just attended my first KubeCon! Since it was KubeCon North America, I only managed to attend half of the talks but got to hear some great content + connect with some awesome people, and can't wait until they post the content online.

This week focuses on some of the content that the community has shared throughout KubeCon.

Videos 🎥

  • KubeCon hosted live streams — including discussions and presentations — on their Twitch channel before and after every conference day
  • Codefresh hosted a hallway track at the end of every conference day — check-it out, you get the gist of the main takeaways and the input from the speakers

Blog Posts 🗞️

News 📢

Amazon, Codefresh, GitHub, Microsoft, and Weaveworks are announcing the creation of the GitOps Working Group. This will be an open CNCF community project.

If you want to get started with GitOps, check-out these two summaries: One and two and more content from my previous newsletter.

Communities 👥

This week, I want to give a shout-out to Codefresh. We have this program, called Blog for Good, basically:

Write a relevant blog post for Codefresh, and we’ll donate $250 to one of the six charities below — your choice. Plus you’ll get another $250 to keep (or, you could donate it all.) It’s a win-win.

If you are interested in participating, please reach out, I would love to hear from you.


Tip of the Week 💡

One of the best keynotes at Kubecon was a panel discussion between: Brad Geesaman, Ian Coldwater, Rory McCune, Duffie Cooley

The main takeaway (and I rephrase here) by IanColdwater was: Everything they do isn't magic (even though it might seem that way) but instead years of practice — everyone can do it, you just have to practice. So keep practicing!

Sticky-Content 📌

  • You can find a collection of all the resources that I list in the DevOps newsletter + additional notes etc. on the public notion page
