“In fact, having seen what KubeCon has to offer, I’m sorry I missed every previous KubeCon since 2015. For a veteran cloud blogger, this conference is a peek into the future of distributed development.” – Ofir Nachmani, Cloud Evangelist & Founder/CEO of IOD

“This is ground zero for the hottest area of the entire computing industry right now.” – Paul Gillin, SiliconANGLE
