Last Thursday, we got to host our first community meetup of the fall season. The format was decidedly more hands-on than usual (similar to the pre-hackathon training sessions we offered at VMworld in Las Vegas), and the 75+ people audience really seemed to enjoy it.

We asked Paulo Renato (LinkedIn), Cloud Architect at Microsoft Azure and one of the co-organizers of the Microsoft Azure Open Group, to give a quick recap of the event:

We showed to our community an easy and quick way to set up a Kubernetes cluster using Azure Container Services configured via Azure Cloud Shell, and more important, how to integrate it with Nirmata, an essential solution to manage modem apps. More than just showing technology, we also tried to share our passion about Open Source Software, integration with partner solutions, and our efforts to share with the community.

Jim Bugwadia (@JimBugwadia), Founder and CEO at Nirmata and one of the presenters, had this to add:

Kubernetes is awesome, but can be complex to get started with. What we wanted to do is help our community members get going with Kubernetes quickly, so they can independently explore and learn. At the meetup, we had over 50 new clusters created on Azure and managed via Nirmata! We certainly took a lot of notes on how to improve the experience for the next time. The best part of the evening for me, was the strong positive validation on the solution sets.

The slides for both presentations are available on Github:
