We are excited to announce KubeCrash Spring 2024, where we'll dive deep into platform engineering and how to build the ultimate internal developer platform (IDP). Each technical session will focus on different building blocks or best practices for constructing an IDP that will match your organization's needs while fostering developer productivity and operational excellence. Join us on April 24 and look forward to great keynotes, including one by Spotify and their internal use of Backstage, and many more technical talks.

What is KubeCrash?

Now in its fifth round, KubeCrash is hosted by six cloud native companies who teamed up to bring you top-notch, KubeCon-grade crash courses on cloud native tech. No vendor pitches, just awesome open source content on projects such as Backstage, Linkerd, cert-manager, and Polaris. Check out the talks from KubeCrash Fall 2023 to get a sense of what to expect.

For this event, we have partnered with Spotify, appCD, Buoyant, Fairwinds, and Venafi. Plus, we have also teamed up to raise money for Deaf Kids Code. For every KubeCrash registration, we will donate $1 to the non-profit 👇
