About this event

Welcome to our first meetup for the new year of 2024, where we dive into the cutting-edge realms of multi-cloud networking and containerized routing. Our distinguished speakers will unravel the intricacies of harnessing the power of Cilium Cluster Mesh and Service Mesh for seamless multi-cloud connectivity. Additionally, we'll explore the uncharted territories of containerized routing, where our second speaker, a Kubernetes Lead Architect, shares his unconventional journey in containerizing an open-source routing stack for a unique blend of projects, including hosting a Minecraft server and a WordPress site.

If you are interested at learning more about Cilium, there is a workshop at the same location during the day that you can sign up for: link here
