KubeCon Europe 2018

From innovation to production – that’s the mantra VMware will embody at this year’s KubeCon Europe 2018. As the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference, KubeCon Europe 2018 will gather an estimated 5,000-6,000 open source and cloud-native developers, architects, technical leaders, CIOs and CTOs in Copenhagen, Denmark on May 2-4. Throughout three days, this community will collaborate to further the education and advancement of cloud-native computing.

As a Diamond-level sponsor of KubeCon Europe 2018, VMware will have a significant presence at the conference. Visit the VMware booth to explore our many VMware-originated open source projects, meet our open source experts and learn about Pivotal Container Service (PKS). Our experts will be sharing their expertise in 11 different ways: from breakout sessions and lightning talks, to leading SIG meetings and hosting group meet-ups, to full-on technical deep dives. However, if you’re looking to really immerse yourself in the world of open source, here are three sessions and keynotes you absolutely cannot miss:

  • Kick off KubeCon in style by attending Chief Open Source Officer Dirk Hohndel’s rapid five-minute keynote address during the conference’s first day.
  • VMware’s Yang Yu and Yifeng Xiao will host a lightning talk offering tips on operating Kubernetes with OpenStack Cloud Provider for beginners.
  • Open Source Engineer Tim Pepper will host a session on growing as an open source contributor by highlighting insights from a Kubernetes newcomer working within the release process.
