Virtualization Technology News and Information
On June 2 Join Cloud Native Technologies Experts for Hands-On Demos, Thought Leadership, Best Practices, and Trends

Following the recent success of the Destination: Decentralization virtual event last month, Kong Inc., a leading cloud connectivity company, and Mirantis, the open cloud company, have teamed up with Microsoft Azure to host the Cloud Native eParty.

Scheduled from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, June 2, the Cloud Native eParty will bring together experts from across the ecosystem for hands-on demos of cloud native technologies and thought leadership on best practices and trends. Attendees will consist of software engineers, architects and IT executives for a single-day event that caters to global time zones.

The agenda will feature technical sessions highlighting open source cloud native technologies and business-level thought leadership from industry experts. Partners for the event include Buoyant, CNCF, Cockroach Labs, HashiCorp, Honeycomb, PlanetScale, StackRox, The New Stack, and Tigera.

"After such a successful event last month, we are excited to once again partner with Kong to put on another great event for our community," said David Van Everen, SVP, Marketing, Mirantis. "Despite the current public health crisis, we are happy to find a way to share innovative ideas and things we've learned, and have some fun while doing it."

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Melanie Cebula, staff software engineer, Airbnb
  • Katie Gamanji, cloud platform engineer, American Express
  • Cheryl Hung, director of Ecosystem, CNCF
  • Reza Shafii, vice president of Product, Kong
  • Brendan Burns, corporate vice president, Microsoft
  • Miska Kaipiainen, sr. director of Engineering, Mirantis

"Kong was hoping to connect with the Kubernetes and cloud native community at various events throughout the year, but since meeting in person is not an option at the moment, we're thrilled to host this Cloud Native eParty with Mirantis and Microsoft," said Marco Palladino, CTO and co-founder of Kong Inc. "Together, we are stronger and learn more when we share our stories, what has worked and the problems that are challenging us most."
