We're back before the summer break with another meetup hosted this time by the kind folks at NMBRS (https://www.nmbrs.com/). Stay tuned as we fixed the agenda with two great speakers (Hashiconf is in town and we're talking to some of the speakers there to come by) and an introduction to the NMBRS platform by Leon Bedaux, COO.
Julian Jay Roux - Instruqt: The online interactive IT learning platform
We will be having an honest look at Instruqt business plan and how nearly two months of market research is throwing light on the reality of learning in tech. We will be looking deeply at the survey he has designed and collected on-site at some important tech conferences - discussing what extrapolations we can make from the data in an honest no-nonsense way.
Dan Acristini - Kubernetes the fun way
Dan will bring his portable kubernetes cluster and show you how to build your own: from bootstrapping an Arm64 Kubernetes cluster using Rancher's K3s to running ceph on usb flash drives.
Pieter Lange - A kubernetes failure story [lightning talk]
Pieter tries to make us all share our failure stories at the kubernetes addict support group, but this time he shares a "fun" failure story with the larger community himself. Stuff involved: CRD's and operators, etcd, the APIserver.
