Let’s start with a quick introduction of InfraCloud Technologies, shall
we? (Master Shifu here; yep, we’re going the Kung Fu Panda route!). In
case you’re wondering, in this story, we also have the warrior panda and
Now, shall we begin?
Master Shifu has been in Cloud-native technologies even before
Kubernetes had reached 1.0 milestone and Kubernetes was just one of the
contenders in the orchestration game (Master Shifu has grey cells too
🙂). But the tide turned quite quickly.
The power of the community behind Kubernetes ensured the quality and
flexibility of the platform which led it to its explosion in mindshare
and adoption over the next few years. We could not have been happier to
be the first Kubernetes partner in India and second in APAC when the
Kubernetes partnership program was announced in 2017.
Master Shifu witnessed the power of the community in addition to open
source. In his own small way, he decided to build a local community and
thus was born the Kubernetes Pune
meetup in the holiday season
of 2016. Now in 2020 a 1700+ strong and very well attended community of
experienced engineers and enthusiasts (You can raise an “issue” here ).
Master Shifu was joined by furious five (Well the number is not exactly
five, but hey you get the feeling, don’t you? 😉 ) who now combined run
PythonPune and you can see them speaking at
various local conferences including the Kubernetes
Forums 2020 and
Kubernetes Days 2019.
We also started doing our bit by supporting development of open source
projects such as BotKube. He
also lent a helping hand in improving and maintaining
Enough about us now isn’t it?
When the Kung Fu team would be at conferences and meetups, one question
came up again and again from attendees: I am an enthusiast, how do I get
into cloud-native technology professionally? Master Shifu, Warrior
Panda, and Furious five had sleepless nights and kept thinking what more
should we do? And “Talk-To-Us” was born!
So what is it you ask?
- You are either a student or an experienced engineer who wants to
switch and work in cloud-native technologies.
- But you need some guidance, mentorship to get started. Potentially
from someone who has been in trenches and knows what works well.
- You want to get follow up help so that you are on course and meet
your goal of working in cloud-native technologies.
You can book a short 1:1 session with one of our engineers and get
mentored on how to build a career in cloud-native technologies.
