3 Tips for Making the Most Out of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022

With so many standout sessions, sponsors, and events, it can be hard to maximize your time. Here are some recommendations.

1. Pinpoint your pain points

Think about the challenges you’re currently facing in your cloud-native journey. Are you struggling with technical know-how? Not sure what you need in your cloud-native software stack? Looking to advance your strategic partnerships?

Whatever your current cloud-native challenges, come to the conference ready to talk about them and find solutions. Jot down your questions and other notes beforehand to stay focused on your top needs.

If backup, recovery, ransomware protection, migration, or application mobility comes up on your list, we can help. Schedule a meeting with a K8s expert at Trilio to find out how to protect your cloud-native apps with ease.

2. Learn the landscape

Now that you know what matters most to you, take a look at the conference schedule ahead of time to pick keynotes, technical sessions, and vendors that line up with your needs. 

The schedule breaks down keynote speakers and details to help you choose, allowing you to filter by topic. You can even build your own calendar by bookmarking your top sessions and syncing them to your calendar app. 

If you’ll be there in person, be sure to click into the details of each session. From there, you’ll be able to see where sessions and events take place, so you know where to go. 

Don’t forget to register for any after-parties or happy hours and map out where they’re located, too. 

3. Attending in person? Remember the basics

If you haven’t attended an in-person event in a while, you’re not alone. So make sure to focus on the basics, like wearing comfortable shoes for a few days on your feet, hydrating regularly, taking breaks, and eating. 

Thankfully, the schedule accounts for breaks and meal times. Need a pick-me-up? Make your way to KUBECAFÉ at booth P11 for free espresso drinks and cookies all week long.  

And remember, you’re in Valencia after all. If you can fit in paella and sangria near the Mediterranean, do it. This list of top restaurants in Valencia can help you wind down post-conference and enjoy a little bit of Spain. 

Bonus: Come say hi to Team Trilio

Team Trilio will be there all week long with free coffee, cookies, daily iPhone 13 giveaways, and a hearty dose of K8s data protection and management. Stop by booth P11 to refuel, caffeinate, and meet the crew.

If you want 1:1 time with our K8s experts, make sure to schedule a meeting in person or virtually. We can show you how to level up your cloud-native data protection with Trilio.
