About this event

Welcome back! We are really looking forward to spending another year presenting great content for you. Let's kick it off strong!
A huge thanks to Square for making this possible by hosting us in their brand new offices.

Pizza and refreshments will always be included :)


Talk #1: To Russia With Love: Kubernetes in Exotic Locations
Presented by Michael Wojcikiewicz, Container Solutions Architect at CloudOps. Human, nerd, likes techno.

You’ve migrated your workloads to Kubernetes in the cloud, but now your client requires their application run somewhere your cloud provider isn’t – what to do? This talk will walk through a real use case of augmenting a cloud managed Kubernetes deployed application with an on prem solution hosted in Russia, detailing all the problems and solutions around providing object storage, CDN, container registry, persistent storage and logging on the Rancher Kubernetes Engine using CNCF projects like Rook and Fluentd.
[30 mins]

Talk #2: Amazon EKS: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Presented by Geoff Flarity, from Square

[30 mins]

AMA Session: Ask us anything!
This is our favourite part of meetups... when we get to discuss with you. We welcome beginners and veterans, present your successes, horror stories and projects. We count on our very engaged community to help make this part of the evening a success. So, BYOQ (Bring Your Own Questions)!!
