What we're about

Meet other developers and users of Kubernetes. Kubernetes is Cloud Native Computing Foundation's orchestrator for containers at scale. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions; runs on any cloud and any hardware. Any skill level is welcome; we’re all new to Kubernetes and we want to create an open, welcoming environment for other Cloud Natives.

We use the #nl-users channel on the Kubernetes Slack (join here: http://slack.k8s.io/) to coordinate.

Please submit your talk via https://www.papercall.io/ams-k8s-meetup

We will be hosting a Cloud Native Day on the 14th of June in Amsterdam and we have news: Kubecon is coming to Amsterdam in 2020!

#6 Cloud Native/Kubernetes meetup of 2022 - Hosted by TRUE

True B.V.

We're coming back in November for a special Wednesday evening, hosted by TRUE in their office at TRUE HQ

We will have two talks on our agenda:

First talk:
Alessandro Vozza(Founder Cloud pirates, Microsoft) and Marc van Duyn (Microsoft)
"“Look, Ma! No sidecars!”

Abstract: The sidecar model of delivering service mesh to applications in a cluster has drawbacks that limited adoption at scale and performance; a new model introduced in the ambient mode of Istio aims at reducing complexity and overhead and delivering secure application networking at both L4 and L7 with zero changes needed at the pod level.

Second talk:
Matthias Osthues (Kubermatic)
"Loadbalancer as a Service in Kubernetes"

Abstract: Exposing service in Kubernetes can be challenging in non cloud environments, due to the lack of load balancers. In a datacenter each Kubernetes cluster might need a special configuration for load balancing. This includes BGP and IP address management which can be complex and not everybody is familiar with.
In a world where clusters are created and deleted in a short fashion, the usage of a load balancer should be as automated and easy as possible. For that reason we introduce KubeLB, a load balancing as a service solution based on Kubernetes.
