Now in its third year and moved to the historic Hamburg Harbor Museum, ContainerDays 2018 was the perfect setting to discuss containers, microservices, Kubernetes, and cloud native tooling. Over 800 attendees came from around the world to hear talks from leading minds in the cloud native ecosystem including Craig McLuckie, co-founder of Kubernetes, Ihor Dvoretskyi from the CNCF, and Sandeep Dinesh, a developer advocate at Google. With one day of workshops and two days of sessions, many bottles of Club Mate and Fritz Cola were consumed by our team to keep everyone going strong.
Day One workshops covered a range of topics from Basic Istio Playgrounds to Advanced Kubernetes Security. We were happy to run the Loodse classic, Kubernetes for Developers, hosted by our ever affable trainer Guus. Sessions kicked off on Day Two with a talk from Ursula Richenberger, of the German Port Museum Project, explaining how shipping containers transformed the transportation and logistics industry just as containers and Kubernetes are currently changing IT development and operations. Between attending talks and staffing the Loodse booth, the rest of the conference seemed to fly by. Outside the talks, both the free harbor boat tour and food trucks (no soggy sandwiches here) were real highlights that set ContainerDays apart from your average conference center conference.
