Andy Randall, VP Business Development at Kinvolk GmbH

Title: Continuing the CoreOS Legacy with Flatcar and Lokomotive

Andy will provide an update on Kinvolk's two flagship open source projects, Flatcar Linux (its "friendly fork" of CoreOS Container Linux) and Lokomotive, a 100% open source Kubernetes distro, originally derived from Typhoon (itself based on CoreOS Tectonic). He will cover what's new in recent releases, where the projects are headed, and how they fit into a broader vision of enabling a truly enterprise-grade open source cloud native platform without requiring commercial/proprietary add-ons.

Andy is passionate about technology and believes successful businesses deliver solutions and services that delight customers, the open source community and ecosystem partners.

Prior to joining Kinvolk, Andy co-founded Tigera and Calico, the foundational open source cloud native networking and network security project. Andy previously has successfully built and grown businesses in the areas of network protocols, voice over IP and web conferencing at Metaswitch. He holds a joint MBA from Berkeley-Haas and Columbia Business Schools. He also holds masters degrees in software engineering, philosophy and mathematics from the Universities of Oxford and Stirling.


Robin Wittler

Title: A short introduction how E&V uses Kubernetes

Robin will show how Kubernetes is used at Engel & Völkers, i.e. how Kubernetes infrastructure is deployed, how it is monitored and how the products are rolled out on it.


See you there!
