Kubernetes Meetup Madrid

14 June 2023

Amazon. Madrid (Spain)

Apart from enjoying the amazing views from the 11th floor, we got to hear great talks from:
Arsh Sharma from Okteto
Álvaro Sánchez-Mariscal Arnaiz from Oracle
Álvaro Hernández Tortosa from OnGres (don’t forget- I’ll be hosting Postgres Ibiza on August 29-31st- CFP closes on June 30th so get yours in. More info-

Community/DevRel panel with Guillermo Ruiz, Francis Santiago, Xavier Portilla Edo, David Gómez García, Jorge Barrachina Gutiérrez (finally got a copy of his book!)

The community vibe is strong- curiosity, questions, welcoming atmosphere, snacks (Arsh will be bringing lots of Risketos back with him to India), connecting with community legends like Bilbostack co-organizer Asier Marqués.

To top it off, got to meet Luis Maria Horvath Mayor for the first time. We live an hour away from each other, know people in common through the Euskal Encounter (cc: Imanol Obaldia Sanz) and he took the time to 3D print my name.

Community work is hard, but you can’t put a price on spontaneous acts of kindness.

Hope you enjoy watching the video as much as I did recording it.
