About this event

Chicago Kubernauts!

We have some exciting talks planned for you this month!

First, come learn how to 10x your development velocity with an easy-to-setup Kubernetes pipeline. Having a true continuous deployment pipeline is closer than you think. We’ll show you how to go from commit to deploy faster than ever.

Also - Do you Service Mesh? Fear not - We’ll cover what a Service Mesh is, how Istio implements a service mesh, and what benefits that Istio-based service mesh brings to both the developer and the DevOps/SRE/Operations community. We’ll cover some of the more popular Istio components and plug-ins, what’s new in the 0.2 release, and what’s coming.

We hope to see you there!
