May 2023 Kong meetups

There’s never been a better time to attend your first meetup! You could get pizza (or tapas or drinks, depending on which meetup you attend). But you will definitely learn loads more about Kong and meet other awesome people from our community of developers, customers, partners, and Kong enthusiasts.

Read on for the rundown of this month’s upcoming meetups!

Istanbul (May 30)

We’re thrilled to invite you to our first in-person meetup in Istanbul for 2023 in collaboration with Desoft.

During the first talk, Bruno Mandic (Sr Solutions Engineer at Kong) will present on “Kong: Powering the World’s Connections”. By attending the session you stand to immerse yourself in the cutting-edge cloud connectivity and gain access to a 14-day free trial of the streamlined SaaS API platform for multi-cloud environments.

Our second talk will be an interactive Q&A session hosted by Kerem Pakdemir (Managing Partner, Desoft). We’ll dedicate a large portion of our time together to address your questions around API gateways, migration from one gateway to another, API CI/CD processes, logging and monitoring, securing APIs, K8 deployments, Ingress Controllers, and whatever you would like to learn to manage APIs in distributed systems. We’re interested to hear your use cases and the challenges you’re facing with your API management practices, and we’ll try to find answers together.
