About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts!

We are happy to announce the August New York City Kubernetes Meetup (#NYCk8s) will be on Wednesday, August 10th at the SpringServe offices in the NoMad. 

We're very excited to host Gabriel Monroy, the CTO and creator of Deis, and Zachary Smith, CEO of NYC-base bare metal provider Packet. 

6:30 - 7:00 - Social 
7:00 - 7:45 - Gabriel Monroy, Deis - I have Kubernetes, now what?
7:45 - 8:30 - Zachary Smith, Packet - Kubernetes and TPM
8:30 - 9:00 - Social / Wrap-up

9:00 - Suspenders, Fidi


Gabriel Monroy (@gabrtv) is the CTO and creator of Deis.  As an early contributor to Docker and Kubernetes, Gabriel has deep experience with containers in production and frequently advises organizations on PaaS, distributed systems, and cloud native architectures.  Gabriel speaks regularly at industry events including DockerCon, CoreOS Fest, Tectonic Summit, KubeCon, and QCon. @gabrtv

Zachary Smith (@zsmithnyc) is a born entrepreneur, having started his first business at the age of 10 mowing lawns with his brother.  For the past 15 years, Zac has been focused on using software to build automated infrastructure platforms, helping to grow Voxel, a Linux-based hosting platform sold to Internap in 2011, into one of the early leading cloud hosting companies.  

In 2014, Zac co-founded Packet to change the perception and usage of fundamental, bare metal compute, network and storage infrastructure and make it accessible by DevOps focused consumers.  His biggest pleasure is talking to users of Packet and understanding their wants, concerns, and use cases for automated infrastructure.

Our friends at SpringServe have offered to provide space for this upcoming event. The address is:

44 W 28th St 
4th Floor 
New York, NY 10001

The building is on the south side of the street between Avenue of the Americas and Broadway.

For those who live further downtown - or simply want to continue to hang out, the owner has agreed to extend happy hour and provides specials for our group after the Meetup.

Suspender is located on Greenwich in the FiDi. Packet's Zac says they've been long time supporters of the tech Meetups downtown. 

108 Greenwich Street 
- 2nd floor NYC, NY 10006

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
