CloudYuga@Kubernetes Day 2019, Bengaluru
Cloudyuga@Kubernetes Day, India - 23rd March'10
On 23rd March, the CNCF wrapped its first-ever Kubernetes Day in Bengaluru. More than 1300 participants registered and I believe ~900-1000 of showed up. It happened at Infosys Campus, in Electronic City. It was great to see such energy and interest during the event. CloudYuga was one of the sponsors and I was also one of the speakers.
Thanks to CNCF's selection committee for selecting Karthik's and my talk - Noobernetes 101, which answered the top 10 questions we get from K8s newbies. This was our repeat talk from last year's KubeCon NA in Seattle. I think we did a better job this time :)
Having the event in our city is good in many ways. First of all, our entire team could attend the event and manage the booth. Secondly, we got to interact with many community members, well-wishers and customers.
Our booth was always busy and during the interaction, participants enquired about our offerings, asked questions about Kubernetes, Istio and so on. Some of them even purchased our self-paced online Certified Kubernetes Administrator(CKA) and Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) courses, which we launched a day before. At the booth, we also offered a printed copy of kubectl's cheat-sheet, which was well received by the participants.
Based on my talk - Noobernetes, we also did a quiz and handed over gift coupons to winners.
The event was at par with any international event and I am very sure participants would have loved it. Thanks to the CNCF's event team for pulling it all together.
Though it was the first event during the Keynote we heard that Kubernetes Day, India is the CNCF's annual event. So get ready guys for the next year .....
