First Dutch Kubernetes/Cloud Native VIRTUAL event!


Apr 24, 2020, 12:30 – 2:00 PM

In-person event

About this event

Howdy! After about a month of sheltering at home we really wanted to being back together the Dutch Kubernetes community, so we're doing what everybody else is doing: a virtual meetup!

This is going to be a bit different (we hope): not only we have two great talks, but we want to leave enough space before and after for some informal (virtual) get-together and experience-swapping, so we urge everyone to please get your camera on and try to jump into the conversation. And as always we can give you sharing control for 5-10 minutes at the end to share whatever you want to share (but as always, stay on topic! and no sales pitch please..).

Make sure you register at the Zoom link (we want to avoid Zoombombing! The meeting password is the name of the most amazing container orchestration framework, small caps).

The agenda will go more or less like:

14.30: Opening, chatting introductions
14:50: First talk
15:20: More chatting and QA
15:30: Second talk
16:00: QA and more chatting!
Open ended, we can stay up all the time we want (it's a paid Zoom account!)

Feel free to bring your demo, short talk,

First talk:

Stability Anti-Patterns in Kubernetes Applications - Ana-Maria Mihalceanu

The desire to change and grow drives a compulsive adoption of distributed system architectures, while the breadth of these modern applications expands with every integration. Yet faults are unavoidable.

Second Talk:

Securing your containers in the face of changing attack surfaces
- Ramon De Boer

Companies are rapidly adopting container technologies to accelerate application development, modernization and transformation to the cloud. This also introduces new attack surfaces that traditional security approaches do not address. What should we keep in mind?
