KubeCon San Diego 2019 Flashback

KubeCon San Diego 2019 was a blast; lot’s of sun, beer, food, amazing projects and learning opportunities! It was great to see the community come together for the love of all things Kubernetes.

The Canonical booth was buzzing with excitement around MicroK8s, Multipass and Kubernetes clustering on that DIY Raspberry Pi clusters running Ubuntu and Kubeflow!

KubeCon highlights:

KubeCon was abuzz with exciting K8s projects and attracting a crowd of ~15,000 to sunny San Diego. The main themes and talks across KubeCon were Kubernetes(duh!), Kubeflow, and security. There were some pretty cool science projects, great networking and puppies!!

The Canonical team was busy at the booth showcasing our multi-cloud Charmed Kubernetes and the exciting features of MicroK8s. Clustering and Kubeflow on Raspberry Pis, platform-agnostic Kubernetes deployments and full enterprise Kubernetes in a micro package.

It was a joy to see people’s reaction hearing about our MicroK8s and Kubeflow products. Single-line install of Kubernetes with Kubeflow on a Raspberry Pi in seconds; meet MicroK8s! We loved distributing an army of stickers, tees and beer to the wonderful attendees.
