MediaOps, the company behind leading technical communities such as DevOps.com, Container Journal, Security Boulevard, DevOps TV and Digital Anarchist is proud to present the Operationalizing Cloud Native with Kubernetes Virtual Summit.

MediaOps virtual events take place in the unique virtual reality conference environment. Not your typical series of strung together Google Hangouts, every one of our virtual summits is a true live conference, replete with an actual theater to view the keynotes and presentations, a conference lobby to chat and socialize, a real virtual expo floor with exhibitor stands and booths, equipped with videos, downloadable assets, and even prizes for you to win.

Best part of the virtual summit — you can attend it from the comfort of your work desk, laptop or even your smartphone. No hotels, no airplanes, no travel, hence no traffic or parking garages. Simply log in and listen, learn, network and enjoy! Oh, and did we mention — it is all absolutely free.
