Welcome to the 2nd iteration of the Kubernetes Community Days Africa [Virual]
Have you ever been interested in learning how Cloud Native Technologies work? How do the different services we use daily scale, and how do SRE, Cloud, and DevOps engineers work tirelessly to ensure uptime of those services? Join us on July 7 - 8, 2022, to learn from the experiences of our fellow community members who will be sharing use cases, mistakes made, and lessons learned running services that we all love.
We will be having a 2-day event. On Thursday, July 7, 2022, we will have tutorials mainly aimed at the entry-intermediate level participants to learn about specific technologies or use cases. These will be virtual. On Friday, July 8, 2022, we will also be having a virtual event with talks targeted at varying experience levels.
