What went well

A highlight of the event was the keynote presentations, which provided insights into the current state of the Kubernetes and OpenInfra projects and their future directions. The first keynote was delivered by Brendan Burns, one of the creators of Kubernetes, who shared his perspectives on the Container Past + Present + Future. The second keynote was delivered by Dhi Aurrahman, an Envoy maintainer from Indonesia, who shared his journey to become a maintainer.

The hands-on workshops were also a big hit, with all participants showing great enthusiasm.. Due to limited room, participants were already waiting in queue before the workshops began, eager to get hands-on experience with Kubernetes and OpenInfra technologies. These interactive sessions provided a practical learning experience and allowed attendees to apply their knowledge in a practical setting.

What we learned

We are always looking for ways to improve our events, and we appreciate the feedback from attendees. Several attendees mentioned the need for better acoustics in the building, as the sound was echoing. Others have expressed a desire for more rooms, and larger rooms for the workshops. And finally, some attendees have suggested adding more ice-breaker sessions to help attendees network and get to know each other.

We take this feedback seriously and will use it to improve our next event. We are committed to making Kubernetes Community Days & OpenInfra Days a better experience for attendees, and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
