AWS Hygge at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon

Kubecon+CloudNativeCon Copenhagen welcome slide

It was a full and eventful week at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU 2018! 4,300 attendees flocked to Copenhagen to learn and be a part of all things Kubernetes and cloud-native.

The AWS team kicked off the week with our workshop Kubernetes the AWSome Way! Engineers from our Solutions Architecture and Containers teams taught attendees how to package, deploy, scale, and monitor their applications using Kubernetes and the AWS cloud. We rounded up two busy workshop days with vibrant conversations at our Happy Hour on Tuesday evening, co-hosted by WeaveWorks.

We had a team of experts in attendance at KubeCon, from folks who sit on the CNCF governing board, to engineers involved with leading various projects and Kubernetes SIG Groups. AWS hosted several talks throughout the conference, resulting in a lot of conversation: both of the sessions below ended with very interactive Q&A.

Anirudh Aithal discussed how the container networking interface (CNI) project makes it really simple for container orchestrators to configure networking for containers in his Cloud Native Networking for Containers in AWS Using CNI Plugins session. (Slides)

Brandon Chavis and Arun Gupta co-presented Introducing Amazon EKS, giving an overview of Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), a new managed service for running Kubernetes on AWS, why we built it, and how it works. They covered how an application can be easily deployed to this service while maintaining the upstream Kubernetes experience. (Slides)

We had lots of stimulating discussions with customers looking to adopt Kubernetes securely and efficiently, and we look forward to more opportunities to talk with everyone at the Seattle event in December!
