The Linkerd Enthusiast’s Guide to Kubecon
Linkerd will be in full force at this year’s KubeCon + Cloud NativeCon NA in Seattle. This will be the biggest KubeCon + CloudNativeCon to date with more than 7,000 attendees and over 200 scheduled breakout sessions.
We’ve listed a selection of talks involving Linkerd below. Linkerd maintainers will also be present at two special events:
- Alex Leong (core maintainer) will be giving a hands-on workshop on how to use Linkerd in production on Kubernetes. This workshop is limited availability so sign up soon to reserve your spot!
- Several Linkerd maintainers will be hanging out at the Buoyant booth (location S37), located to the left of the food and beverage station inside the exhibit hall. Come by and meet the folks behind the lines of code.
