If you are in the cloud native space, you know about the flagship event from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, KubeCon: it’s the place to be for all Kubernetes enthusiasts out there. Being ourselves pods, and clusters aficionados, we will definitely be in Chicago for the next edition of the North American conference happening next week.

Where's Wally? I mean, Kubefirst!

John Dietz, co-founder, and Frédéric Harper, Principal Developer Advocate, will be at the event from Tuesday to Thursday. They will be at the P37 booth in the solutions showcase room (Hall F) on level 3 of the venue. The booth is situated near the entertainment lounge #4, not too far from the cloud native corner store. We will share a small video with better directions once at the event, so keep an eye on our Twitter account.

This will be the perfect opportunity to meet us in-person, learn more about kubefirst, have a VIP tour of our new 2.3 release including multi-clusters (physical & virtual) support, or ask (mostly) any cloud native questions you may have! We will have some cool swag to give away to folks spending some time with us.

Win your very own K-Ray

Flappy K-Ray flying through the pipes

Because your brain will definitely need a breather after listening to a technical talk about the latest and coolest cloud native tool, or discussing with another exhibitor, we got you covered with our Flappy K-Ray game! Come to our booth, and enjoy some fun time trying to safely make K-Ray, our lovely mascot (a manta ray), flies in between those nasty pipes.

Flappy K-Ray game ended with a high score of 26

The first 50 people to beat 10 and tweet (or share on LinkedIn) about it (just take a picture of your score at our booth, tag us, and show us the tweet), will get their very own K-Ray plushy (half the size of the one in the below picture) as a souvenir, and a reminder of the dangerous journey you started when you decided to help K-Ray flies in the game. Don’t be fooled by the number, moving K-Ray toward those 10 pipes is no small challenge.

Less than six days…

Not even a week before we jump in a plane to meet you all, and we cannot be more excited. John and I will bring our usual joy of living coupled with our funny side, and we will even record a special edition of our livestream on Thursday. If you are at KubeCon, don’t be shy, and definitely come say hi!
