Wow - a week out, and we are still blown away by all the incredible conversations we had at KubeCon EU. If you visited our booth, you know exactly how we feel. We were able to chat with so many companies about how to optimize their deployments into customer-managed environments, including needs like air gap support, customer telemetry, managing customer licenses, handling upgrades, complementing Helm, and more. Some highlights of the week include – 

Winning the unofficial “Best Swag” award from theCUBE. The told us they’ve “been to thousands of events, and never seen this as swag” - 

Getting lots of compliments about our founder Grant’s podcast, EnterpriseReady

Handing out 1,000 paintbrush pens and notebooks - 

Hosting a local artist, Diana Canales Rojas, to paint two Kubernetes-inspired paintings - “The Technology that Powers Amsterdam” and “An Abstract Take on Orchestration and Containerization” - 

Our co-founder Marc completing an impromptu interview with Techstrong

Seeing lots of engineers sign up for our Quest for the Ring of Kubernetes

And last, but not least - getting to spend in-person time with our team - 

Thank you to all the incredible people who stopped by our booth to say hello. We loved getting to know everyone and learning about the work you’re doing. Don’t forget to say hi at KubeCon Chicago this fall!
