About this event

Los Angeles Kubernauts and Cloud Native enthusiasts! 

OMG! We're excited to be part of Open Source Summit 2017 taking place in September. Our meetup will be September 12, 2017 and ANYONE can attend regardless of if they're going to the Summit or not.

Also, if you'd like to speak at a future meetup ping us via meetup or twitter (@baldwinmathew). Anyone can present or do a lightning demo regardless of experience. 

6:15 - 6:45 - Gather, Drink, Grab a Plate

We may start earlier depending on crowd size, so come early and claim your spot.

6:45 - 7:30 - Cloud Native and Open-source: Kubernetes, Istio, Security, and More

Come and discuss Kubernetes, Istio, security, containerd, CNI, and more from the emerging cloud native and container open-source ecosystem. Bring general or technical questions about any of the projects and we'll try and answer your question. Can't make it? Don't worry we'll try our best to stream this. We'll provide a broad view of the projects being discussed, then dive into the mechanics and details of any and all.
