About this event

Joint event with Boston K8s Meetup

Last meeting for 2023!! First and foremost, great technical content, but we'll have opportunities to network and what-not too.


- "My Fairy Swagmother" at work sent me the pictured holiday Ugly Sweaters to raffle! (If you want to bring along swag from your own employer for holiday giveaways, please do!)

- I'm finally going to commit to hosting another public CKA study group because I have to renew my own certification. I have to pass the exam by Mar 2024. So come along if you want to join me in that journey.

If your employer can sponsor this event, let me know! If not, no problem, we'll still have nice food and drink, I promise! But, remember to RSVP so I can get an accurate head count.
