As usual we will have two presentations:

Anthos clusters on VMware – Next-gen IT infrastructure in action by Justas Krikštaponis (TeraSky Europe)

Anthos enables you to manage GKE clusters and workloads running on virtual machines across environments. You get consistent managed Kubernetes experience with simple installs as well as upgrades validated by Google. Anthos can run on your existing virtualized infrastructure and bare metal servers without a hypervisor layer. Anthos simplifies your application stack, reduces the costs associated with licensing a hypervisor, and decreases time spent learning new skills.

Agile Vitamins for Leadership by Vladimirs Ivanovs and Marija Maijere (@agiletransformer.com)

Real-World Agility requires spontaneous actions and adequate responses to the challenges of the VUCA/BANI world. You will learn a playful way how to develop Agile Leadership and deal with Real-World Problems by applying acting and role-play.

Participants will have a chance to use their imagination and help fairy-tale characters realize their leadership potential with the use of the 9 principles of Agile Leadership.

Through fun and laughter, you will discover new behavioral patterns and strategies for personal growth as leaders.

Learning Leadership from fairy-tales – anyone can do it!
