Data on Kubernetes: The Leading with Code Community!

If you’re excited at the prospect of cloud-native databases on Kubernetes, you’re not alone. A group of like-minded individuals and organizations has assembled as the Data on Kubernetes Community, which has hosted over 50 meetups in multiple languages since its inception last year. We’re grateful to MayaData for helping to start this community, and are excited to announce that DataStax has joined as a co-sponsor of the DoKC. 

In more great news, the DoKC was accepted as an official CNCF community group, and is set to host the first ever Data on Kubernetes Day as part of Kubecon/CloudNativeCon Europe on May 3. Rick Vasquez’s talk, “A Call for DBMS to Modernize on Kubernetes,” lays down a challenge to make the architectural changes required to become truly cloud native. Together, we’ll arrive at the best solutions through collaboration in open source communities like Kubernetes, Data on Kubernetes, Apache Cassandra, and K8ssandra. Let’s lead with code and keep talking!
