About this event

We are excited to host the 17th edition of the Cloud Native Computing Linz meetup!

We'd like to thank Cloudflight for hosting the Meetup!

--------- The Speakers ---------

Marco A Marquez

Marco is a Solutions Engineering Manager at Kong. During his time at Kong, he's been a critical part of growing the company from less than 30 employees to the now 500+ employees. Prior to Kong, he worked at Box and New Relic - two unicorns that went through an IPO.


Martin Strigl 

After buying his first CD Pack of SUSE Linux 4.3 back in 1996 and compiling almost every interesting bit of Software (including X) from scratch Martin switched Distribution and quickly fell in love with RedHat Linux by using it regularly beginning with Zoot.

Ever since then he tried to contribute back all the little piece of code he wrote while driving a Serverfarm in a way that nowadays people tend to call DevOps Style.

During the last 20 years Martin had the pleasure to gain a lot of fundamental knowledge along the whole stack from L1 - L7.

The last 5 years brought a strong focus on container technologies with all its surroundings (like orchestration frameworks), IAAS and software defined storage.

--------- The Talks ---------

Marco A Marquez - Building a Fully Automated CI/CD Process to administer your API Lifecycle with Kong

APIOps it’s not just another buzzword. APIOps (DevOps + GitOps for APIs) enables you to automate your whole API development flow: from development to production. As a result, you’ll be able to enhance your productivity through the reuse of APIs.

During this presentation, Marco Marquez, will show you how you can leverage Kong to automate your API development flow. By simply pushing an OpenAPI spec change to a Github repository, you will see how this can trigger a CI/CD flow that pushes changes to your API gateway and developer portal, automatically!


Martin Strigl - Kubernetes, docker, cri/-o, containerd, OCI, runC, container - what they are and how they fit together

Reading the headline and immediately feel like hearing "Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the VP is such a VIP, shouldn't we keep the PC on the QT? 'Cause if it

leaks to the VC he could end up MIA, and then we'd all be put on KP." ???

This talk will shed some light on what these things are at all, how they evolved and how they fit together.


Event will be in person and indoors:

We will follow the COVID rules that are active on the date of the meetup.
