KubeCon Barcelona 2019

By Gema Gomez

I was at KubeCon Barcelona 2019 a couple of weeks ago and had a lovely week full of great meetings and new technology finds. I must say kubernetes has come a long way over the past couple of years and there is a thriving community around it. Here is a list of videos that I encourage people to have a look at (video list). Regarding keynotes, I’d probably highlight the Don’t stop believin’ one from Bryan Liles at VMware. He is not only a great speaker but he also summarized where the community is and where it is heading beatifully:

The conference was at a great venue, Fira Gran Via Barcelona, but we spent a lot of time walking from presentation to presentation (it was huge). The sponsor booths were busy and lots of demos were going on at any given time. I stopped at many booths and discussed plenty of topics with plenty of interesting people, most of it around how to manage and monitor services, what the best way to manage scaling is and what is the right cloud to be deploying to depending on requirements. Arm64 featured also in a lot of conversations.

I even found time to enter a couple of raffles and came home with an echo show from the Mesosphere booth, thank you guys! I must say I loved the tetris machine you had at the booth too :D
