We're excited to be a "startup" level sponsor for this year's KubeCon + CloudNative Con. We're taking a hybrid approach to this year's events, with virtual events streaming on our Twitch Channel, along with in-booth meetups, live office hours in our virtual booth, and plenty of chatter in our Discord (opens new window).
The highlight of the show for us is Co-Founder and CTO Kyle Quest, creator of the popular DockerSlim open source project, joining experts from Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and RedHat, among others, during a full day of sessions at Cloud Native eBPF Day (opens new window) North America, an event dedicated to this revolutionary Linux technology.
In addition, Ayse Kaya, Slim.AI’s Senior Director of Strategy and Analytics, will discuss her findings in a report on the “Top 100 Public Containers”, available for download starting Wednesday.
On Tuesday, we will release details of a forthcoming case study showcasing how teams can use the platform to speed their development. And Friday, Head of Product Josh Viney will talk about the company's future in helping solve developer's challenges in shipping cloud-native apps. The events take place daily at 11am PDT on the Slim.AI Twitch channel (opens new window).
