Cloud Native Computing Foundation Sponsoring PromCon and Software Circus

By June 17, 2016 January 15th, 2018 Blog

We are excited to sponsor several upcoming developer shows taking place in EMEA this year, including PromCon 2016, occurring August 25-26 at Google Berlin, which will be the first conference around the Prometheus monitoring system. The second is Software Circus, occurring August 31-September 2 in Amsterdam and will be two days focused on Cloud Native Computing organized by Implicit-Explicit & Container Solutions.

Check out our preview of the shows:

PromCon 2016

This exciting event will connect Prometheus users and developers from around the world in order to exchange knowledge, best practices, and experience gained around using Prometheus. PromCon will also enable collaboration for building its community and growing professional connections around systems and service monitoring.

Organized by the Prometheus developer community, they’re expecting an intimate crowd of experienced and influential infrastructure engineers.

CNCF is proud to be a Platinum sponsor, alongside fellow sponsors Robust Perception, Weaveworks, CoreOS, Google Cloud Platform, and more. The full speaker lineup can be found here and features talks from DigitalOcean, Weaveworks, Improbable, CoreOS, SoundCloud, Rancher Labs, Joyent, Raintank, and more.

This event is fully sold out, but there is a waiting list and tickets will be issued over the coming weeks. Additionally, all talks will be recorded and will be published after the event. Plus, you can still participate in the Prometheus conversations at PrometheusDay, co-located with CloudNativeCon, in Seattle November 8-9. Register to attend or submit to speak! CFPs close August 5th.

Software Circus

This show will take attendees “To the Cloud and Beyond” with two whole days centered around cloud native computing! Last year’s inaugural event brought together prominent influencers like Kelsey Hightower, Ken Owens, Luke Marsden and Adrian Cockcroft, and companies like Cisco, CloudSoft, Mesosphere and Weave.

Software Circus, an initiative of Implicit-Explicit and Container Solutions, started as a meetup group with a mission to tackle the social aspects of technology, the bleeding edges and people’s experience.

CNCF is proud to sponsor the infamously fun conference — with a focus on learning, inspiring and entertaining — which has grown to include workshops and two days of sessions, equipped with dancing, robots and drones.

Staying true to its roots, the Software Circus community will host pre-event meetups before the big show, including:

While the call for papers closes on July 31st, if the show is anything like last year’s event we can expect lively sessions discussing the basics of working with Docker, the fundamental concepts and ideas behind containers, workshops on continuous delivery with Docker on Mesos, and tutorials on using Prometheus for metrics collection, monitoring and alerting in a microservice environment.

Following this exciting event, the cloud native computing conversation will continue at CloudNativeCon in Seattle from November 8-9! Register to attend or submit to speak! CFPs close August 5th.

Register now for Software Circus — we hope to see you there!
