See you on the Gurten!

The local Cloud Native community organizes the next edition of the Swiss Cloud Native Day on Mount Gurten. As organizers, we are convinced that the CNCF is providing the most important answers for the future of IT. Our event will bring newcomers and experts together and be an inspirational place where different perspectives and experiences meet.
