About this event

Hello Tunisia Kubernauts!

We are excited to announce our first 2019 CNCF community gathering.

This community gathering will be divided in two parts (one hour for each).

* Program:

05:00 - 05:30 Welcome, Pizza + drinks and socializing.

05:30 - 06:30 Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, the organization that hosts Kubernetes, will be speaking at the Tunis meetup about the adoption of Kubenetes and other cloud native technologies. Why are similar technologies often developed independently at the same time? Why has Kubernetes become so popular? Dan will take a very quick tour of some surprising science and technology history and suggest some answers.

06:30 - 07:00 Naeil Ezzoueidi, will be speaking about the contribution process and how to get involved into the Kubernetes project.

07:00 - 07:30 Ahmed Hosni, will be telling the community a real life story about kicking the Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam, starting from learning path, practicing for the exam.
