About this event

We are thrilled to announce our next Kubernetes Meetup. As you might notice we have also merged CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation) into this meetup. Our aim for this meetup is to be the hub for knowledge sharing how to build sustainable Cloud Native Ecosystems using open-source and vendor neutral projects.

Our first combined meetup is hosted at Spotify on 25th September and proudly sponsored by ELASTX.

Then, he'll cover a little about the technology from the foundation and a few of the interesting ways in which is it being used today.

If you know about Grafana you have most likely heard about Torkel. In this session Torkel will provide us with an update what’s going on at Grafana. What’s new and what they are working on. He will also show us a bit of “Best practices / Interesting things that you see in the wild”.

Talk #3 - Mak Ahmad, Technical Program Manager, Google - “A good intro / deep dive into Istio”:
