I was able to join the session for North America last night, must say it’s a lot of fun and more people should check this out.  Instruction and delivery were excellent from our Google Cloud friends, especially the GKE overview - I’m starting to understand this better (dangerous)  ha ha …..    ;-) 

Can’t wait to see who the winners of all that schwag will be next week !!

@danny.pancratz great job orchestrating this.

This was fun, my first experience with Kubernetes and Docker.  This was different experience from other events I’ve taken part in.  The repeat attempts allowed us to figuring out how to be efficient, and the repeated attempts gave increased comfort with the tools. 

My first attempt,  4th place, just learning the lay of the land, made some mistakes which set me back. 

 

My second attempt landed me in 2nd with 219 423 274, Then along came Andrey over here leaving us all in the dust.. so settled for 3rd.. (Andrey you’re going to need to share that secret winning sauce there)… 

​​​

I was content.. until.. Alfons swooped in and bumped me back to 4th.. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED 

 

So back at it again.. and I dethroned Kakatuahitam just barely…. for now … 

 

 

9 hours left on the clock….a lot can change..
