About this event

Hello Kubernauts,

The 7th k8sOM will be our last one before KubeCon! We are therefore happy to announce that we have Weaveworks CEO Alexis Richardson as our speaker. Alexis will be talking about the latest news coming from the CNCF.

We have 2 big changes this time around. The first change is that this meetup will be Wednesday, as will all of our k8sOMs from now on. The second is that, only this week, our european folks will notice that we will start an hour ealier than usual.

Alexis' Bio:

Alexis is the co-founder and CEO of Weaveworks. He is also the chairman of the TOC for CNCF, and the co-founder of the Coed:Code meetups. Previously he was at Pivotal, as head of products for Spring, RabbitMQ, Redis, Apache Tomcat and vFabric. Alexis was responsible for resetting the product direction of Spring and transitioning the vFabric business from VMware. Alexis co-founded RabbitMQ, and was CEO of the Rabbit company acquired by VMware in 2010, where he worked on numerous cloud platforms. Rumours persist that he co-founded several other software companies including Cohesive Networks, after a career as a prop trader in fixed income derivatives, and a misspent youth studying and teaching mathematical logic.
