Detroit welcomes the largest open-cloud and container-based developer events and workshops in the world. The event offers tutorials, keynotes, and networking opportunities across five days.
As a longstanding CNCF member, Layer5 has donated two of its open source projects to the CNCF: Meshery and Service Mesh Performance. We're hosting project office hours where you can learn more about each of the projects, and meet the project maintainers.
Join us as we host project office hours. Don't be shy with your questions! Project maintainers are happy to receive your questions and will be available to share about current project activites, discuss current features as well as planned future project roadmap.
Meshery Project Office Hours
October 26, 2022: Meshery is the open source, cloud native manager that enables the adoption, operation, and management of Kubernetes, any service mesh, and their workloads. Meshery is a multi-cluster Kubernetes manager hundreds of integrations supported for any workload or infrastructure components.
We will be briefing you all on the following feature highlights of the latest version of Meshery v0.6.0:
- Dynamic Management UIs
Service Mesh Performance Office Hours
October 27, 2022: Service Mesh Performance is a CNCF-hosted project that has received support from Layer5, Intel, RedHat, and HashiCorp. By utilizing SMP, MeshMark offers a global performance index to compare the effectiveness of your mesh deployment to those in other organizations setups.
The State of the Cloud Native Network: Deep-dive from CNCF TAG Network
October 27, 2022: Join CNCF Technical Advisory Group co-chair and Layer5's founder, Lee Calcote as he discusses the many projects of TAG Network and its working groups. NATs, Network Service Mesh, BFE, Contour, Kuma, Service Mesh Interface, Chaos Mesh, Open Service Mesh, Emissary, k8gb, Service Mesh Performance, Submariner, Cilium, Meshery, Fab Edge, Istio, Nighthawk, Aeraki, and FabEdge are just a few of the many terms used to describe cloud native networking. The size might be intimidating.
From fundamental Layer 3 connectivity to the newest in service mesh, the third session will cover the big picture of Cloud Native Networking in the CNCF and how to put it all in a context you can utilize.
Other Activities at KubeCon NA 2022
Layer5 is participating in the Security Slam again this year. Security Slam started at the beginning of October and will end at the conference. The program offers a chance to not only strengthen the security of your project but also to contribute $50,000 to the diversity scholarship fund. Sonatype and CNCF are working together as part of a Google-sponsored initiative to assess how well projects adhere to CNCF's security criteria. Each project that achieves full security will get a $2,500 donation from Google for the CNCF's Diversity Scholarship Fund.
Kid's Day will be held on October 23, the day before the main event begins! In two fantastic STEAM workshops, this is meant to provide young creatives in the Detroit area the chance to unleash their thoughts. Children are not required to register for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in order to take part in Kid's Day. You can pre-register.
At this year's conferences, we have Contribfest, which will offer a forum for tracking technical debt, eliminating bugs, and resolving open issues and requests in CNCF projects. Project contributors and maintainers come together during Contribfest in a common area to work on outstanding issues of various sizes. Projects like Knative Eventing, KubeVirt, Ago, Flux, and Prometheus are ready for Contribfest cleaning.
Resumé Writing Workshop
Attendees are encouraged to join this unique DEI event, which will feature a resume writing class, mingling, networking, and refreshments. The event will take place on October 25 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM and is sponsored by Visit Detroit. Scholarship recipients and regional groups that support diversity, equality, and inclusion in technology have received special invitations.Be sure to join Layer5 at KubeCon NA 2022 and find us at other events, too. Learn more about each of our open source projects and try one (or all of them) today!
Meshery Docker Extension
Develop service mesh-ready apps using Docker Desktop and Meshery. The Docker Extension for Meshery extends Docker Desktop’s position as the cloud native developer’s go-to Kubernetes environment with easy access to the next layer of cloud native infrastructure: service meshes.
