Upgraded venue

Edgecase is growing rapidly and in order to accommodate everyone, we moved to the beautiful and unique venue: De Rijtuigenloods in Amersfoort.

You step into 100 years of railway history in this grand, historical barrack. The industrial space has many authentic historical aspects and allows us to have space for all of you attending the event! Another benefit of the Rijtuigenloods is that it's next to Central Station Amersfoort, making the venue very accessible for everyone joining by public transport.

Edgecase: Reflecting on 3 Years of Change 

By Gerrit Tamboer

Three years ago, when we launched Edgecase, the industry was just beginning to explore the potential of bringing Kubernetes to the edge. Today, implementations are rapidly increasing, and many companies are harnessing the power of Kubernetes at the edge. But what is the current state of the industry? Are we truly ready for widespread adoption?

The Edgecase Advantage: Building Modern Go Apps with gen-AI in Kubernetes 

By Joeri Vrijaldenhoven

ἀρχὴ δέ τοι ἥμισυ παντός.
Well begun is half done - proverb found in Lucian’s dream.
.env file? if env == “development”? docker-compose up? These have long been part of app development to recreate a development environment that is as much production-like as you can get on your local machine. But they tend to just take a slice of the truth for example running sidecars in docker-compose is a pretty terrible experience. Needing database access locally tends to just use an admin password. Tools such as Skaffold, MirrorD, Delve, and Air all take great steps to take development to the next level. When you combine this with the coming of gen-AI development on your local machine is changing fast. So join me during this talk and let’s build a Golang API using these techniques, see advantages and drawbacks as we live code and deploy!


Cowboy Stories from The Wild West of Open Source 

By Eelko de Vos & Erwin de Keijzer

Since the dawn of Cloud Native, our consultants at Fullstaq have encountered all kinds of surprises.

For your amusement and education we will give you some of the best digital cowboy stories in our corner of the Open Source world. And we will crown the Edgecase cowboy of the year for the best story!

Rebuilding the Raffler: Real-time Communication with Mercure

By Pauline Vos

At AmsterdamPHP, we've created a raffler to raffle off prizes every meetup. It was using Websockets to communicate between clients in real-time. It quickly became apparent that Websockets as a protocol is a little too bare-bones for our use case.

Enter Mercure! A new RTC technology developed by the people behind API Platform. In this talk, we'll take a look at how I rewrote the raffler to use Mercure, which will cover set-up and usage for most people's use cases.

Secret Management: The Soft Way

By Lian Li

Secrets. Security best practices mandate that they stay away from the code—or else! And that’s what we did for a long time.
But as CI/CD practices evolved, for a myriad of reasons, we now want to ship the code, the environment, and the secrets, all in one lump. So, we can’t hide the secrets anymore… unless?
Tools like HashiCorp Vault attempt to address this by managing secrets outside the delivery chain. Great! But you can’t use those inside local dev environments, so… When that’s precisely what you need to do, then what?
In this talk, Lian will show the audience how to manage secrets the GitOps way, so you can maintain security best practices while also being able to use them in your local environment for development. Sound like magic? That’s because it is.

After this talk, the audience will be able to understand secret management solutions that work seamlessly in a variety of environments.

eBPF - The Superpowers to Secure Your K8s Clusters

By Alba Ferri

Discover how eBPF can give your Kubernetes clusters superpowers! This talk dives into the magic of eBPF, a game-changer for Kubernetes observability and security. With eBPF, we can now collect metrics, analyze bottlenecks, and monitor network traffic in ways we never thought possible.

We'll focus on Falco, an open-source tool that uses eBPF to catch bad behavior in real-time. See how Falco integrates with Kubernetes to keep an eye on system calls and kernel-level activities, making your clusters tougher and more secure.

Join us to learn how eBPF can transform your approach to Kubernetes security, making your infrastructure more resilient and ready to tackle modern cloud-native challenges.

Going Retro: What we can learn from old game consoles for the modern art of running Kubernetes at the edge 

By David Sterz

If you like Kubernetes and old consoles and are curious about what they have in common join this session!

Enjoy nostalgic feelings by travelling back to the good old times of the 8-bit era and let's have a look at how we run Kubernetes at the edge today in 64-bit environments.

Get practical ideas for your Kubernetes setup at the edge inspired by the fascinating retro consoles we all love and how this can be used for alternative approaches to trade off performance vs. costs vs. reliability.

Edgecase workshops

Workshop registrations

Aside from the presentations and general spaces full of activities, we have workshops at the ready! Learn about how Talos can help you manage your clusters or experience Kargo during the build of a deployment pipeline. More workshops will be announced soon, so stay tuned!

You can attend the workshops for free, you just need to register in advance.

You will receive a separate mail to register for the workshops. 


Talos: Up and Running from Scratch

By Erwin de Keijzer and Kevin Tijssen

Talos as an operating system is currently hot and happening. During this workshop, Kevin and Erwin introduce you to the declarative way of Kubernetes clusters and how to manage them with Talos. 

What is an immutable OS? How do you bootstrap Talos? How do you upgrade your Talos? That, and more questions will all be answered during this hands-on workshop.

Supporting the theory, Kevin and Erwin will be giving demos, after which the hands-on part of the workshop starts. Here, you will define your own cluster, bootstrap and upgrade this. Along the way, there's room for questions about specific use cases.

Your First Experience with Kargo

By Bas Bremer

Recently Bas gave a talk about his first experience with Kargo. Kargo is described as a next-generation continuous delivery and application lifecycle orchestration platform for Kubernetes. More information about Kargo can be found on the website.
During this workshop, Bas will guide you into your first experience with Kargo. You will build a basic and advanced deployment pipeline together with him.
After the workshop, you will have a solid understanding of Kargo and its possibilities.
In order to properly partake during this workshop you will need:

  • Laptop with:
    Docker Desktop installed
    Kind installed
  • It’s nice if you already have experience with GitOps tools like ArgoCD.

Fast-Track to Cloud Security: Attack, Detect, and Defend in Minutes

By Marcel Claassen

This workshop offers a technical exploration of cloud security without any sales influence and underscores the importance of quick action in the dynamic field of cloud security. Since time efficiency is crucial and cloud attacks can unfold in just 10 minutes, we are setting a “5-5-5” benchmark” for cloud attacks. The “5-5-5” Benchmark challenges participants to detect threats in 5 seconds, triage in 5 minutes, and respond in 5 minutes. 

In this 60-minute session real cloud attacks, such as SCARLETEEL, are simulated, allowing attendees to practice their defense strategies and is intended to enhance cybersecurity skills and instill a proactive mindset. Participants will gain expertise, an improved understanding and a readiness to anticipate and counteract against evolving cloud threats.
