KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2018 is shaping up to be the largest gathering of the cloud native open source community in 2018. Besides being in our hometown of Seattle, KubeCon is a great opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and techniques for building modern, cloud native applications.

AWS will be at KubeCon with co-located events, happy hours, talks, and a booth where you can meet and learn from AWS engineers. Let’s take a look at everything that’s going on day-by-day:

Co-Located Events on Monday, December 10th

We’re kicking off the week with three educational events, an opportunity for you to dive deep and get hands-on experience building with cloud native technologies on AWS.

Kubesec Enterprise Summit

Co-hosted by Aqua Security, AWS, and Red Hat, KubeSec Enterprise Summit is focused on the challenges larger organizations face in meeting demanding security and compliance requirements when deploying Kubernetes in production. This one-day event will provide a unique opportunity to hear from others who have already deployed Kubernetes to support highly secure solutions, as well as a range of industry and technology experts in securing cloud-native applications.
