About this event

Hello Berlin Kubernauts!

We warmly invite you to attend the next Berlin K8s meetup. Humanitec has volunteered to host the group this month at their offices.

First on the program is Chris Stephenson. He is going to present the talk: "Environment Management Within a Kubernetes Cluster." In this presentation Chris will discuss some of the problems around managing environments in the cloud. However, this talk won't just identify the problems, he will also share some potential solutions!

In the second presentation, Muneer Ahmad and Steve Guhr will team up to present: "AI Pipeline Optimization with Kubeflow on Kubernetes." Kubeflow is a machine learning toolkit for K8s. Come and learn how it works and some best practices for using it effectively.

SPONSORED: Thank you so much to Humanitec for hosting the group this month. We also greatly appreciate the ongoing support from NetApp.
