AWS Community Day - Bengaluru - 2019

CloudYuga at AWS Community Day - Bengaluru - 2019

Bangalore's AWS community organized AWS Community Day, Bengaluru on 27th and 28th July. CloudYuga proudly supported the event by becoming a silver sponsor.

At our booth, during the event, lots of event participants stopped by. We showcased to them our training offerings and the training platform we have built. Participants primarily enquired about the following:-
- Kubernetes in general
- How long are Kubernetes going to be relevant? Is it worth learning it
- Our classroom and corporate training offerings
- Kubernetes Certification CKA and CKAD

Our team thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the participants. For some of them, it was the first time when they were on another side of the table. It feels like being a shop owner and customers are coming to enquire/buy something. It is a unique experience to have.

We had some extra passes and to give them away we ran an online quiz on Kubernetes Security. ~150 people attempted the quiz and we gave away free passes to the winners.

I have also presented at the event and covered Kubernetes Security with some hands-on. Following are slides:-

One of the participants came to our booth and showed interest in our offerings. While discussing we came to know he has just finished his bachelor's and looking for a job as well. He followed up and now joined us as an intern. Such events provide great experiences and opportunities to students and newbies. I always recommend such events to students to get such exposure.

Being a start-up with a limited budget, it is always difficult to decide where to spend and which event to sponsor. But we knew the organizing team and that was the only factor for our decision. Kudos to the organizing team to make the event so engaging and successful. As a sponsor, we are happy and looking forward to next year's event.
