Get ready to RUMBLE with MayaData and OpenEBS at Kubecon San Diego’19

KubeCon San Diego is less than a week away, and at MayaData, we are as excited and thrilled as we can be.

Our team of experts from MayaData and OpenEBS will be hanging out at booth #SE23. Visit us, get a demo of all the MayaData offerings, and pick up some cool MayaData swag. The 4-day conference starts Nov 18th, 2019, and finishes Nov 21st, 2019.


KubeCon + CloudNativeCon is the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference that gathers technologists and adopters from the leading Cloud-Native and Open Source communities. Attendees get the opportunity to interact with members of Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing, gRPC, Fluentd, rkt, containerd, CNI, Jaeger, Envoy, Notary, Vitess, CoreDNS, TUF, NATS, Helm, and Linkerd communities as they gather over four days to further the advancement and education of cloud-native computing.

In this blog, I’ll give a quick recap of the previous KubeCons and KubeCon San Diego 2019. Also, at the end of the blog, I have some exciting news to share (free beer!). Without further adieu, let’s get started.

The KubeAcademy organized and ran the inaugural KubeCon conference in November 2015 in San Francisco. KubeCon rapidly grew from 500 attendees in 2015 to about 8000+ of closest Kubernetes friends at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2018. That’s a 1500 percent attendance increase in four years of KubeCon North America.

The Kubernetes ecosystem has noticeably matured over the last year. Kubernetes has become the most viable way for companies to build new or modernize existing applications in a cloud environment. KubeCon San Diego 2019 will witness about 12,000 attendees. Amazing, isn’t it?

For those presenting, a piece of advice for your presentation would be to make sure it is well-reviewed and that you have practiced it several times. Read about our personal experiences from KubeCon Europe 2019 and KubeCon North America 2018.

Also, here’s a checklist of what needs to be brought to make sure your event is more enjoyable and fruitful

  1. A laptop.
  2. A bag - to carry all the swag :D
  3. Freed up phone memory - to capture the images.
  4. Select the talks/speakers you would like to listen to in advance.
  5. At least 20 business cards per day when you’re at the conference.
