The upcoming KubeCon + CloudNative Con Europe on Aug. 17-20 will gather adopters and technologists to further the advancement of cloud native computing, and this year will be Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF) first virtual event. With the expectation that it will be the biggest and best event to date, The New Stack team is excited to be part of it. We will be hosting our annual virtual pancake breakfast on Monday, Aug. 17 at 5 a.m. PST | 14:00 CEST, and streaming virtual podcasts from our booth in the media and analyst exhibit hall where you can stop by and meet with our team.

For those of you who participated in our in-person pancake breakfasts KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe previously, we will deliver that same lively dialogue. Hear key insights from domain experts sharing what’s truly interesting about Kubernetes — the things that are placed on top of it that really count.

The discussions:

Pancake Breakfast

For companies that are working to handle the new wave of cloud native applications, this Pancake Breakfast will bring you the latest insights of Kubernetes; we’ll discuss those technologies that are working but just reliable, boring and of no matter. On the flip side, we’ll also look at what technologies are still brewing and have not crossed the chasm to boring.

Moderated and hosted by The New Stack founder and publisher, Alex Williams, we’ll explore this discussion with panelists across the broad cloud native community including Priyanka Sharma, General Manager at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Janakiram MSV, an analyst at Janakiram & Associates, Patrick McFadin, Vice President of Developer Relations at DataStax and Bill Zajac, Regional Director, Solution Engineering at Dynatrace.

Join us, as we discuss the latest insights around Kubernetes deployments, its growth trajectory and adoption maturity. We’ll also explore the issues that make it difficult to adopt Kubernetes at a scale basis, and dive into the developer experience of application maintenance and management.

Virtual Days of Podcasts

When you swing by our booth, you will see us streaming our latest virtual podcasts, sponsored by CNCF. You’ll hear from leading industry experts like Cheryl Hung, vice president of ecosystem at CNCF, who will share insights from the latest CNCF Technology Radar, a guide on cloud native and Kubernetes technologies.

We’ll also be sharing market insights around platform operations with Janakiram MSV, Principal Analyst @ Janakiram & Associates. In this podcast, we’ll look at its role with developers as well as configuration and policy management teams. We’ll discuss the tools and workflows that people in platform operations utilize in these complex architectures and the trajectory of the platform operations movement.

We’ll have much more insights from this sponsored podcast series by CNCF so bring your questions on by our booth. And join us for a (virtual) short stack as the industry’s top developers, end users and vendors come together in the largest open source developer conference!
