Instead, we are starting our KubeCon/CloudNativeCon Amsterdam coverage and have co-chairs Vicki Cheung and Constance Caramanolis on as a guest to tell us all about these conferences. If you’ve never attended one of these, this discussion will give a good idea on what to expect and for seasoned attendees, there is a little bit of a behind-the-scenes look at how these events take form.
