Cloud native with Saiyam - Crazy meetup idea

Have you planned a meetup in 2 days and actually turned this crazy idea into reality? I did! Yes, Friday(26th) night my wife gave me this crazy idea of doing a meetup in the Delhi NCR region and I was pumped up for this and came up with the idea of “All things cloud native meetup by Civo” to kick off the cloud native scene in this region.
I posted on my social media - Twitter + Linkedin and we started searching for a venue sponsor. Meanwhile, I created a small registration form without location. Saturday went in calls /messages and I was unsure which location I should book my hotels so finally, I decided to book it in Gurgaon(till now the location was still not finalised). After reaching the hotel I was sitting on the 28th and finally with the help of Deepak from Adidas, Sandeep from Opstree and Som from Simpplr we were able to secure the venue for the 29th Civo meetup. I just promoted the registration a couple of times and posted on my socials that the meetup is in Gurgaon at Simpplr office. By the 29th afternoon, I had 350+ registrations and there were 100+ people who actually showed up for this meetup on such short notice. A couple of them even travelled from 300km and locations like Patna, and Jaipur. I mean this is really crazy and should be tried at your own risk as it was super hectic but I am happy that I pulled the meetup, location, speakers, swags and food in 2 day time with the power of cloud native community <3
We are heading towards September and many events are coming up as well. I am geared up for the upcoming months and all the events. Attaching a few meetup pictures at the end of the newsletter.

1/ There are many ways to manage credentials in Kubernetes, some better than others: 🔐

- Kubernetes Secrets
- Encrypt Secrets (Bitnami, KSOPS)
- External secret stores
- Secrets Store CSI Driver
- Sidecar injectors (Vault, Conjur)

Here's the rundown: 🧵

CVE deep dive!

Today I'll look at how scanners work rather than a CVE.

I'll focus on how they find packages, because that's the first step in looking for CVEs.

I'll show a blind spot scanners have with many popular docker images, and how you might be missing a LOT of vulns.
