Lucas Käldström is a Kubernetes contributor, CNCF ambassador and straight back from talking at KubeCon Shanghai. Lucas is based in Finland and will join over video to help us sort out these questions and give a picture of what is hot in the community.
Also we’ll have time for discussions about what everyone is working on in this space and if there is interest for ongoing meetups to discuss tooling and approaches to building and operating a cloud-native stack.
Uminova Innovation will provide some light food and drinks.
