KubeCon / CloudNativeCon Europe 2019

KubeCon / CloudNativeCon Europe 2019

This year I’m going to KubeCon | CloudNativeCon which is held in Barcelona from Monday, May 20, 2019 – Thursday, May 23. This is my first KubeCon and I’m really looking forward to the sessions and the meetings I have scheduled

Here is list of tips which kind of apply to every conference I have attended.

  • Wear comfortable shoes
  • Take a powerbank/ adapters with you
  • Build your agenda using the agenda builder
  • Leave time between session. You need time to process the information you get from different sessions
  • Take time to network with other attendees or vendors
  • Check the sponsors on the Sponsor showcase
  • Install the Sched app to have your schedule on your mobile
  • Enjoy the event πŸ™‚

You can book your agenda via this link, https://kccnceu19.sched.com/ . Below is my schedule as it currently is within the app. I selected a session for every slot but that will not be doable as I have also meetings planned and like I said in my tips you should als to time to process the information and of course visit the booths of the sponsors. So this schedule will definitely change during the conference.
