Deploying Helm Charts in GKE Private clusters
Hi Expert, I have provisioned GKE private clusters using Cloud Build and Terraform and I would like to validate the Build Architecture that I am setting up.Could you please tell me what is the Google recommend approach to deploy helm charts? using Cloud Build through a VPN connection (as described here: https://cloud.google.com/architecture/accessing-private-gke-clusters-with-cloud-build-private-pools) or using Cloud Deploy? https://cloud.google.com/deploy/docs/overview - Using a VPN between Cloud Build and GKE seems to be mandatory and I am not really fan of this. Is the Artifact Repository able to pass through official docker images since I want to make sure that all images have been analyzed? I haven’t seen the option yet and I am afraid having to implement a third-party solution.Best Regards,Ludovic

AWS Re:Invent Attendee Feedback
Hi All,I wanted to ask if any of you as C2C community members who are multi-cloud with AWS had a chance to attend re:invent 2022 this year just a few weeks ago (either virtual or in-person & paid for a ticket)? I’m curious about your experience post-pandemic at the event, how it was different from this year vs. prior years if you have gone to more than one re:invent, as well as what value AWS offers that Google Cloud Next has not done as well that is a catalyst for you to attend (and that Google should consider for 2023+? i.e. hands-on workshops, training, certification, leadership & team training, expert content, beginner content, roadmap sneak peek sessions, etc.)Any and & all thoughts or feedback welcome. Trying to design the most valuable experience possible for Next ‘23 & your input is priceless in that process!
