2022 Events We Are Excited For!

Events We Are Excited For In 2022

Since 2021 was an atypical year, to say the least, surely everyone is very hopeful about what 2022 will bring to us.

While most of our meetings continued to be online, some tech events this year were again presential, bringing communities together in person again.

Here, hoping this will continue to happen,  and that we will get to see our industry colleagues again, on and offline, we are listing the tech events we are excited about in the year to come.

Cloud Native Saar Meetups

When? 

It happens bimonthly, and the next confirmed date is the 27th of January 2022.

Where?

The event is online, live-streamed via Twitch, but its base is Saarland Germany.

What?

The love child of the cooperation between anynines and p3r, this event has come a long way since its first edition and had amazing speakers from all over the world talking about anything cloud-native, their own journey and experience, tech teams management, technical lectures, and the importance of community.

In its fourth edition, the Cloud Native Saar Meetup became an official CNCF chapter, and it opened a Twitter channel to announce dates, speakers and other details about its upcoming and past events. 

Participation in the meetups are free, all you have to do is save the date for the next one, and be there online. You can also participate in live Q&A with the speakers, and there are always competitions with giveaways from O’Reilly.
