About this event

Oracle is growing fast in the cloud native space and they're damn serious about helping our community; hence they reached out to host our last meetup before the summer holidays in their great office in Utrecht. We got two great speakers, one very well known to the community and a second one flying in from Italy just for the occasion. Looking forward to it!

Deniz Zoeteman - From starting a test cluster to hours of production downtime: a failure story [lightning talk]

Starting a test cluster seems innocuous; but without proper review and automation, it can still lead to destructive errors. This is a story of how we ended up with hours of downtime during KubeCon, the help we got and the importance of validating configuration.
