About this event

We're back at our favourite sport which is to organise great meetups and let the community gather in an informal and relaxed setting.

We are hosted by Jefferson Frank this time ( at WeWork offices in Stravinskylaan, and we'll have another great line up of speakers. Please come forward if you want to give a lighting talk, bring your slides on a USB stick or mail them.

17.15 Doors open

18:15 1st talk: "Reactive from Code to Cloud"

19:00 break and dinner

19:15 2nd talk: "Kubernetes operators and you"

20:00 lighting talks (10min/talk)

- Abstracting Kubernetes with an open source DSL (Jude Pereira)

Abstracting away kubernetes using a DSL which is focused on business logic - Storyscript focuses on the movement of data between pods and functions. We’ll quickly see how much it takes to launch a scalable group of services on kubernetes, vs using Storyscript to do the exact same.

- Cloud Native Day Update

20.30 Closing

First talk is from a well-known member of many communities in Amsterdam, Fabio Tiriticco.
Fabio is a software engineer, conference speaker, and community leader based in Amsterdam. While building his own start-up, he fell in love with Akka, Scala, and Reactive systems, so much so that he founded the 2000-member strong Reactive Amsterdam meetup group. When not in front of a screen, he enjoys long distance bike rides and fingerpicking his guitar.

Reactive from Code to Cloud
A fully Cloud-Native system needs to rely on BOTH infrastructure and application levels to deliver scalability and resilience. What runs inside the containers is important! This talk shows Akka as the perfect match to Kubernetes to be cloud-native all the way - from your code up to the cloud.

The second talk is from yet another well-known member in the cloud-native communities, Pieter Lange.
Pieter is a self-driven IT systems infrastructure specialist, has a strong affinity with open source technology and security, and has been facilitating development teams for some time now.

Kubernetes operators and you
The update to the k8sday talk last summer - what are kubernetes operators? And what the core concepts that enable this pattern?
A broad section of the current operator landscape plus my experiences with some of them will be on display, and probably demoed.

Let us know in the comments if you like to have 5 minutes on stage to present your project or experience (no sales or hiring pitches please!).

Location is:
