Replicated Kubecon 2021

As October is upon us, we look back to where we were at this time last year and breathe a (slight) sigh of relief. While we may not be out of the woods yet when it comes to the global pandemic we’ve all endured over the last 18 months, we are finally at the point where those of us that are vaccinated can gather safely for an event that we’ve missed so — KubeCon!

It’s been a long 2020 and 2021, and Replicated is beyond excited to be back in person at KubeCon in Los Angeles this week. Whether you plan to connect with industry experts, learn from K8s professionals, or network with visionary leaders, we can’t wait to see you there!

Swing by our Booth P16 to kick back and lounge with us at the Replicated picnic. We’ll have picnic tables, coolers, a campfire, and even a few cornhole boards to garner healthy competition with your friends. Grab some fantastic swag, including Etch-a-Sketches, K8s hats, headbands, pins, stickers, hoodies, and more. 

Our friendly staff will be on hand to share our Kubernetes expertise, give you a demo, or answer any questions you may have about delivering and managing your application in customer-controlled environments. We’ll also be offering one lucky event goer the chance to win $500 every day of the conference by stopping by Booth P16 to enter KubeStakes, our KubeCon sweepstakes! 

For those of you who will not be able to attend the event, we have you covered! Attend any of our workshops and labs, browse video and written content, or even get a demo at our virtual booth.

We have also put together what may be the greatest digital experience of all time. (It’s hard to be humble when you create something as wonderful as this…) We are proud to present: – A mashup of your favorite scheduler and the best LA has to offer!

Come for the music, but stay for the landmarks. Explore the highly-touted tourist attractions, such as:

  • The multi-platinum selling, smash-hit “K8s Love” music video
  • The Kubernetesland Walk of Fame, featuring your favorite CNCF projects
  • The Kubernetes Pier, featuring orchestration and scheduling games
  • The La Brea .JAR Pits, where you can marvel at the fossilized remains of monolithic architectures that refused to modernize
  • The Team Kubernetes Hat Sweepstakes, where you can enter to win this one-of-a-kind headwear

Check out some of the action-packed activities and events that we are hosting both in person and virtually during the conference! Feel free to stop by Booth P16 (just to the right of the main entrance) for more information.
