eBPF Day – October 24

eBPF Day is a vendor-neutral conference that explores the transformational technology that is eBPF, and its impact on the future of cloud native. This event is co-located with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.

As a speaker at the event, our resident eBPF expert, Tomas Hruby, will demonstrate how to inspect and troubleshoot the eBPF mode of Calico Open Source during his talk (details below). This session will equip users with the skills to dive in and diagnose issues in their Kubernetes deployments.
