Cloud native with Saiyam — It’s not over yet!
March 2022 first edition
Hello people, how are things going on? It’s been a difficult time to fully concentrate on anything. My friends are at war, my friends are suffering from COVID and this is disturbing my mental peace a lot these days. I am not a sad person but this breaks my heart as I know what loss of life means, what it means to lose someone you love — everything gets destroyed. Life is a gift and you should cherish each day and spread love.
KubeCon CFP results came in and I am giving 2 talks this season hopefully in person with my friends.
Students Ambassador program
The Student Ambassador program is going great, with over 100 submissions and it is going international ❤ Great to see the support from my friends in spreading the word! The applications will remain open so you can apply/share. I will keep on improving the initiative.

Let's talk about Rust.— 🇺🇦 Oliver Jumpertz (@oliverjumpertz) March 10, 2022
A language with a steep learning curve but one of the most rewarding programming languages out there.
It powers parts of AWS, Dropbox, and even some important blockchain projects.
