Why not do good while learning about cloud native tech? Buoyant, Civo, Cockroach Labs, Fairwinds, Pulumi, and Jetstack have teamed up to donate $2 for each virtual booth visitor to World Central Kitchen (WCK), a non-profit committed to providing meals in response to humanitarian crises.
My professional background has included nearly ten years of managing field events and user conferences. I never thought I would say this, but I miss traveling. I even missed Vegas and AWS re:Invent this year. I miss connecting with customers and advocates in our communities. I wish we could all be looking forward to getting together in person in Seattle or Austin or insert any city here. As the year continued, it became clear we were not going back to in-person events anytime soon, and everyone in the industry pivoted to virtual programs while video conferencing became an all-day activity.
