KubeCrash is Back! The KubeCon Detroit Warm-up

I’m so excited to be part of the second KubeCrash happening virtually this year in preparation for KubeCon Detroit. Alongside other great open source contributors - Ambassador Labs, Buoyant, Civo, Cockroach Labs and JetStack, Fairwinds has teamed up to bring you a virtual learning event full of practical cloud native know-how and new development skills. 

Hosted on October 5 and 6, this virtual, free, and 100% focused on open source event will be held at European- and Americas-friendly timezones. Check out the program and register today.

Why Open Source

DevOps teams are driving the technology choices to build Kubernetes production environments. Increasingly we see engineers gravitate to freely available open source to help enhance the platform and lower costs. Open source is a great entry point in some cases before adopting an enterprise version and can also be significantly easier to integrate and support than closed source solutions. 

Open source is critical to any modern technology stack. KubeCrash aims to help engineering teams develop the needed skill set to effectively leverage these technologies in their production environments. During these two half-day knowledge sharing and virtual learning sessions, developers, reliability engineers, cloud security specialists, and platform engineers will learn directly from the maintainers of some of the most popular open source projects. 

The KubeCrash Program

Come prepared for a schedule packed with great content and actionable insights directly from thought leaders and the teams that maintain some of the ecosystem's most popular open source projects. From keynotes by Cheryl Hung  to introductions to CNCF end user resources by their creators to technical sessions and workshops, and an end user case study,, there's no shortage of amazing choices.
