#6 DevOps Diary: Recap of My First KubeCon

#6 DevOps Diary: Recap of My First KubeCon


Featuring great content created during KubeCon, news, tips, and more

Hey everyone, I hope you have/are having a lovely day and Welcome to week 6 πŸ₯³

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 πŸŽ₯

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

Blog Posts πŸ—žοΈ

News πŸ“’

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 πŸ‘₯

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 β€” 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 πŸ’‘

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 β€” everyone can do it, you just have to practice. So keep practicing!
