We're Cloud Native Wales and we want to talk all things Cloud Native!
## Speaker: Brice Fernandes | Weaveworks
Brice (https://twitter.com/fractallambda) is a software engineer, entrepreneur and instructor at Weaveworks (https://twitter.com/weaveworks).
In this hands-on session, Brice will go through the principles and practices of Gitops, an operational model developed and codified at Weaveworks. He will show you how to implement Gitops in practice on Kubernetes using open source tools. After this session, you'll be able to set up your own Gitops deployment and management pipelines.

* Be comfortable with the Unix command line
No preparation needed. Attendees will be provided with an online environment to use during the tutorial. Bring a laptop with a modern browser.

## Lightning talk
Wales has had an Internet Exchange since 2014 but little is known about what it does and the benefits it can bring. Steve will cover the history of the Exchange, why regional peering is becoming more important and how 1 in 3 of the Welsh population will shortly be able to access it.
