Linkerd Community Guide to KubeCon EU 2019

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU

This year’s KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU in Barcelona is chock full of Linkerd content, from training to booths to the 10+ Linkerd talks! Many of your friendly neighborhood Linkerd maintainers, contributors, and adopters will be there in person – if you’re attending, please come find us. We’d love to meet you face to face!

Here’s a quick guide to all the Linkerd content that’s happening at the conference:


On Monday, May 20 at 13:00, the day before the KubeCon conference, Buoyant will be holding a hands-on workshop on how to use Linkerd in production. Linkerd core contributor Alex Leong will teach the workshop, and other Linkerd maintainers will be there to support Alex and connect with you. The workshop is being offered to all KubeCon registrants. Seats for this workshop are limited, so sign up soon to reserve your spot!

Expo Hall Booth

Lots of Linkerd maintainers will be hanging out at the Buoyant Linkerd booth (location S36), which will also have some fancy Linkerd t-shirts and stickers. The booth is located on the right side of the exhibit hall, near the Hub Lounge, across from the Microsoft Azure booth. Come by and meet the folks behind the lines of code!

Keynote Sessions

On Tuesday morning, Bryan Liles will share a Cloud Native Compute Foundation projects update. Be sure to look closely for the Linkerd update!

On Tuesday afternoon, be sure to keep your eyes open at the Microsoft keynote for some very cool Linkerd content!
