I think Diane Mueller is planning an emerging technologies themed OpenShift
commons event before KubeCon valencia, that might be a venue you could
target to get the message out?

Kubecon Valencia the week following?
What do you think?
Last October I proposed we set our sights on the two Kubecons this year as
key opportunities to show and tell about the Operate First project. The
Kubecon attendees are a very good audience for the messages and focuses of
our community: SRE, cloud operations, all-open source cloud based on
Kubernetes, GitOps, DevSecOps, AIOps, etc. etc.
But one is getting harder to achieve: Kubecon in Valencia, Spain 16 - 20
May. First is the risk of COVID, which hasn't gone down as much as we hoped
last October. So this affects overall attendance to the event, and
individual attendance where our organizations are paying for our travel and
deciding on that risk.
Second is competition for our attention just days before Kubecon in the
form of work being done for the Red Hat Summit on 10 - 11 May. The Operate
First project has more than one role to play for that event. In my opinion,
Red Hat Summit is just as good and possibly a more important audience than
Kubecon for the Operate First project.
While many Red Hatters who work in the Kubernetes community have the
experience of navigating back-to-back Summits/Kubecons, this is not
something our project has experienced and I suspect not many of us
individually as well. For our first big public year as a project, I
recommend we focus on overachieving fewer goals and avoid getting spread
Let us know your thoughts and feelings, however they go.
