Booternetes II: The YAML Strikes Back (Europe)

Booternetes II: The YAML Strikes Back (Europe)

Jun 15 2021

June 15 • 09:00–13:15 CEST

As Luke started his Jedi training, he realized he wasn’t on Tatooine anymore; he was now part of a larger system, the Force. In this installment of SpringOne Tour, we’re going to teach our cloud native Spring Boot applications how to wield the Force by building on abstractions that know about and incorporate Kubernetes itself.

Join VMware Tanzu team members Michael Coté, Olga Maciaszek-Sharma, and Marcin Grzejszczak for Booternetes II: The YAML Strikes Back. (And yes, that’s #booternetes.)

And, stick around for Tanzu team members and experts Jakub Pilimon, Jonatan Ivanov, Nenad Momcilovic, and Timo Salm for an interactive workshop on where you’ll learn to apply some of these concepts in practice.
