Jetstack is teaming up to help deliver more meals to Ukraine

If you are registered to attend KubeCon virtually this week then why not help Ukrainians in need while learning about cloud native tech? Buoyant, Civo, Cockroach Labs, Fairwinds, Pulumi, along with 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. Working with restaurants across Ukraine and in six countries welcoming refugees, WCK is providing hundreds of thousands of daily meals for people in need. WCK serves meals at shelters, hospitals, transit hubs, and more. It’s a wonderful mission and, if you agree, we encourage you to donate to WCK directly πŸ’™ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ πŸ’›

How it works

Participating is easy. If you are registered for KubeCon, just click on the booth links below to visit our virtual booths. Each visit will count as a $2 donation, so if you visit us all, that’s $12 for the cause right there! Of course, there are many more reasons to visit our booths. You’ll find lots of great cloud native resources including demos, tutorials, ebooks, and more. Here are some of the highlights you can expect at each booth.

Buoyant β€” the creator of Linkerd

Buoyant is announcing something really exciting: the introduction of fully managed Linkerd. You can be one of the first to check out the demo, and you’ll also find a ton of service mesh content including a service mesh 101 in English and Spanish , our engineer’s guide to mTLS, and details on Buoyant’s Service Mesh Academy. For this and more, visit the Buoyant booth!

Civo β€” Fast Simple, Managed Kubernetes

Civo is the first pure-play cloud native service provider enabling companies to host core applications with ease. Helping speed up development, increase productivity and reduce costs. Civo’s easy-to-use managed Kubernetes service is fully CNCF certified and 100% Kubernetes upstream compatible making it the perfect solution for startups, SaaS providers, and established businesses worldwide. Check out the Civo booth today!

Cockroach Labs β€” Build What you Dream

CockroachDB’s presence this year at KubeCon, both physical and virtual, is primarily a charitable one. (If you are attending in person, be sure to visit booth P16, where for each badge scanned, they’ll donate $3 to either Black Girls Code, Women Who Code, the Cancer Research Institute, or UNICEF for Ukrainian relief). Visit their booth (or book a meeting here) to see demos and architecture overviews about what they’ve learned from building a multi-region, managed, distributed SQL database offering on Kubernetes. Check it out now.

Fairwinds β€” Kubernetes Governance and Security

Fairwinds is a leader in Kubernetes governance. Fairwinds provides a unified view between dev, sec, and ops removing friction between those teams with software that simplifies complexity. DevOps teams use Fairwinds to improve Kubernetes security, cost, and policy and enable developers with service ownership of their applications. Its extensive open source software β€” Polaris, Goldilocks, Nova, and Pluto, to name a few β€” help customers ship cloud native applications faster, more cost-effectively, and with less risk. For those organizations that need to scale open source, Fairwinds offers Insights. Visit the Fairwinds booth today!

Pulumi β€” Modern Infrastructure as Code

At Pulumi’s booth, you’ll learn about their cloud engineering platform that brings infrastructure, developer, and security teams together through a unified software engineering process that tames cloud complexity and accelerates innovation. Don’t miss Pulumi’s Ask an Expert live sessions to hear directly from the engineering team. Whether you want to know more about how to build with Universal Infrastructure as Code in general-purpose programming and markup languages or just learn more about what’s on the roadmap, this is your chance to ask anything. Visit Pulumi today!

Jetstack - the creators of cert-manager
