Andy is a long time developer and currently the CTO of Civo. Civo have launched a beta of the world's first managed k3s service, but so many people don't know how k3s and k8s (Kubernetes) are different, or why k3s can be beneficial for some use cases over a regular Kubernetes cluster.
Shaun is an independent contractor working as a platform engineer. He has a deep love for all things Docker and Kubernetes.
We're cloud native enthusiasts who meet regularly throughout the year to discuss all things CNCF and are looking to arrange great events and speakers for Birmingham and the wider midlands area community.
