KubeCologne

Yesterday we had the first Kubernetes Conference in Cologne, KubeCologne.

With over 150 attendees and more than 15 session I hope we were able to present a good point of view on the current state of Kubernetes and the road ahead.

There was also ample time for networking and sharing – we really hope that people were able to learn a lot and get the information they were looking for.

Thanks a lot to all who joined us, our sponsors and our film crew!

GoDays 2019 in Berlin

This week we went to the GoDays in Berlin, a technical conference dedicated to Golang and the Gopher.

The conference had two tracks, full with great technical talks around developing in Go and running Go in public clouds or on Kubernetes; the keynote was delivered by Natalie Pistunovich (Fraudster) on The Importance of Beginners.

The organizer (Loovent) provided a great location with Factory Goerlitzer Park and went to great length to make sure that there was good food and ample opportunities for networking.

Highly recommended for 2020!

What a weekend!

Let’s recap what happened last weekend:

  • Brazil elected a right-wing extremist for President
  • Eleven were killed in the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue
  • After the election in Hesse, Chancellor Merkel will not seek re-election
  • IBM bought (or wants to buy) Red Hat

Things that didn’t happen:

  • Horst Seehofer announcing his resignation
  • SPD leaving the coalition government

All hopes are now on the outcome of the midterm election in the US, and on SUSE.
