We are excited to meet in-person once again at SPS Tower! Real people and real pizza, what a combo! We want to continue to make our meetups virtually accessible and engaging for those who wish to attend remotely. Please reference "Public Safety Guidelines" below the agenda for details on attending in-person.

Join us for Debugging Go Programs in Kubernetes, presented by John Murphy, Principal Software Engineer, consulting at Optum.

Kubernetes is popular and complex, but no need to fear! This presentation will cover common issues such as pods not starting, debugging deployment resources, gaining visibility into problems interactively to take the guesswork out why a pod crashed, and techniques to attach a debugger to your go program in a container to step through your code.


  • 6pm - 6:30pm: Networking, food & drink, and announcements
  • 6:30pm - 7:30pm: Debugging Go Programs in Kubernetes - John Murphy
  • 7:30pm - 8:00pm - Open Discussion

Located at SPS Tower. 333 S 7th St, Minneapolis, MN 55402
From street level, go up the escalator and take the elevator bank to the 8th floor.

The elevators are restricted at 6p. An SPS employee will be near the elevator to provide access to the 8th floor until 6:15p. If you arrive after that, please text 612-568-8380 and someone will come down to let you in. Thanks for your patience.
