About this event

Celebrating the latest and greatest Kubernetes v1.8 release!

Kubernetes v1.8 is scheduled to be released the 27th of September. Let's catch up on all the new and shiny features and the important stabilization work done in the last release cycle!

There will also be general introduction presentations on what Kubernetes is, how it is connected to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, what other hot cloud-native projects exist out there and more.

As this also is the first official Kubernetes & CNCF meetup in Finland, we'll gather feedback from you what you'd like to see at future meetups like this one.


18:00 - 18:30, The meetup officially starts. Grab a pizza and a drink, and talk to the talented person next to you!

18:30 - 18:45, Annie, Lucas & Teemu - Welcome from the organizers

18:45 - 19:15, Lucas Käldström - An introduction to the cloud native world of Kubernetes

19:20 - 19:50, Teemu Heikkilä - Let's have fun with serverless applications on Kubernetes

20:00 - 20:30, Michael Duergner - Kubernetes on AWS at Zalando

20:30, The meetup officially ends, but feel free to hang out with the people for the rest of the evening, do some Q&A with the speakers, etc.

Anyone is also welcome to do a 5-10 min demo in the end of the meetup if they feel for that and notified the organizers about that a bit in beforehand.

Finally, you can join the livestream if you can't make it physically to the meetup:
