Now that slowly everyone is getting back from their vacations, our calendars are filling up again. And here is another date you shouldn’t miss: The InSpec 1.0 release party at the next Chef Meetup Berlin at Endocode HQ on the 27th of September. Chef will officially launch InSpec 1.0 on the 26th of September, and this meetup will celebrate the release with some live demos and real-life implementation examples. InSpec is an open-source testing framework for infrastructure with a human- and machine-readable language for specifying compliance, security and policy requirements.
If your plans for the weekend aren’t set yet, how about you join us and the free software community for the first FSFE Summit at the bcc in Berlin? The FSFE Summit is a joint event together with QtCon of the Qt community, KDE Akademy and the VideoLAN community. The Free Software Foundation Europe is working with policy makers and public bodies in Europe to enhance the rights of Free Software users and developers and to abolish barriers to Free Software.
After a short summer break where hopefully everyone enjoyed the few minutes of sunshine the Berlin summer has granted us, we are back with our next Kubernetes Meetup in September! Join us on the 14th of September at the Endocode headquarter and learn more about OpenShift and lessons on saving AWS with Kubernetes. We are very excited to welcome Lutz and Felix as our speakers. Lutz (@AtomicContainer) studied computer science at TU-Berlin and worked as a sysadmin in mixed Linux / Windows environments.
If you watched our Twitter account this weekend, you noticed that we weren’t just lying in the sun/hiding from the rain. On Saturday, we opened our doors and welcomed our friends from Crate.IO for a Kubernetes hackathon. Crate is an open-source, highly scalable, shared nothing distributed database. And yes. They love containers. And that is how we met. So Saturday was here and along with it arrived some 20 enthusiasts who were ready for some hacking.
So the weekend is here. Fantastic. What are we up to on our Saturday? Well. We’re welcoming our friends from Crate.io for a kubernetes Hackathon at the Endocode HQ. Having integrated with Mesos and Docker, Crate is kick-starting their advanced support for Google’s orchestration tool with this hackathon. There will be introductory talks about Crate and kubernetes during the day, food, drinks and cluster hacking on Google Compute Engine, kubernetes and Crate.
