First up as always, thanks to our sponsors Tecknuovo, Contino, Pusher, Humio and Sardina Systems

First was a how-to guide for converting your project to GitOps with Flux, then a discussion of Kubernetes within the Enterprise, wrapping up with a talk on Clouds, toys, and enterprise, including sing a case study.

And also: shoutout to the guy who came all the way from New Zealand for a wedding, and decided to spend his free evening joining us at a Cloud Native London meetup! Sorry I didn’t get your name, but you definitely win our award for ‘furthest travelled attendee’! Welcome, and hope you had a good evening!

Cloud Native London April

The next meetup is on Wednesday 3rd April, and joining us are speakers from Airbus, Bristol University and Component Soft. RSVP and save the date now! Don’t forget to sign up directly with CodeNode as we get closer to the date.


Also, next month comes with a little challenge! We’re always seeking to get different folks to come along to our meetups, so if you can bring along a guest (or encourage someone to come) to the April meetup who is from an underrepresented group, you’ll both get some cool socks!

See you next month!
