GitOps Conversation Kit
The GitOps Conversation Kit (https://gitops-community.github.io/) includes links to the GitOps Days (http://www.gitopsdays.com/) session videos categorized by topic areas as well as the full YouTube playlist. Weaveworks is donating the kit to the community and will continue to improve it so that you can use it to move the needle in your company with GitOps!

We’ve also created a minimalist, non-spammy mailing list (https://mailchi.mp/7e9e02588c50/gitops-community) to share updates to the GitOps Conversation Kit. Subscribe (https://mailchi.mp/7e9e02588c50/gitops-community) if you want non-noisy updates regarding the kit and relevant information about GitOps.

---------------------------------------

Come see how Firecracker and Liquid Metal can be used to get the most out of your bare-metal and transform your edge or data-centre.

We’ll start by covering Firecracker, the engine powering the AWS Lambda & Fargate service, a technology with security, isolation and efficiency at its heart. Then we’ll look at a new Weaveworks OSS project called reignite, that is part of a project code-named Liquid Metal, to see what value it brings when working with Firecracker.

See how Firecracker & Liquid Metal is going to be used with a Tier 1 Telecom operator to offer a competitive option for edge workloads requiring VM level tenancy/isolation & security whilst also meeting the minimal footprint and low resource overhead needs of a modern edge compute infrastructure.
