Team Business[edit]

Incoming/Needs attention[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation member organization. For the upcoming KubeCon EU 2020 event (2020-08-17 through 2020-08-20), the CNCF has decided to give all member organizations unlimited event tickets. This is the first ever virtual KubeCon, so I can't vouch for the value of the event, but past KubeCon events have been enjoyed by many Foundation Engineering staff who are interested in Kubernetes, distributed tracing, monitoring, alerting, and similar devops/SRE topics.
