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!

Rancher Rodeo

On Monday, December 10, we had the fourth Rancher Rodeo this year, focusing on the new 2.x branch of software and Kubernetes container orchestration.

We had a good sized crowd and guest speakers from our partners NeuVector and Cologne Intelligence, all in all a very successful afternoon.

If you’re not sure what Rancher is – it’s a tool, or better, the tool, to manage multiple Kubernetai in the Enterprise – https://rancher.com/

St Johann im Pongau

This week we had the opportunity to be in St. Johann, a small city in the state of Salzburg in Austria and a prime skiing destination, to deliver a small workshop on Kubernetes and Rancher.

Although St. Johann is a very touristy destination, even outside of winter, prices were surprisingly low and the food was exceptionally good.

We’ll definitely try to come back!
