This year I managed to partecipate to KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2020. As you can imagine, the conference did not happen in real life, but it was converted to an online conference. More virtual conferences I attend to, more I understand the limits and the advantages of them compared to real conferences. In this particular conference, I realized that one of the biggest problems I have with virtual conferences is that, during the conference, the conference events and talks add to your usual events and meetings, making it impossible to follow all events you wanted to follow.
I like to attend such conferences because I get a feeling about the community and how it’s growing. Needless to say that the Kubernetes and the Cloud Native communities are growing very quickly. During this week, many companies in the Cloud Native ecosystem made several announcements, which can only confirm the strength of this community.
I hope to be able to attend the next KubeCon, that time - hopefully - in person.
