Leafcloud at Edgecase 2022

Highlighting innovation at the edge and tips for developers to reduce their carbon footprint.

Like pesky flies that won’t give you a break, plenty of unanswered questions still swarmed as we unpacked the van and rolled up at the aptly named De Fabrique, in Utrecht. Would the people still nursing their KubeCon hangover make it? Do developers even care about sustainability? Can I get a coffee?

Those doubts disappeared about 20 seconds after seeing the Fullstaq team. Their excitement was infectious, smiles lit the room and sure enough, shortly after the gates opened over 250 Kubernetes enthusiasts filled the main hall. After an inspiring opening talk by Gerrit Tamboer and supported by the boundless energy of host Bart Farrell, the gathered masses listened to Thatcher Peskens preach the green cloud gospel.

The highlight was the lively back and forth between Thatcher and the audience, as more and more people joined in spouting creative ways code can be optimized to reduce energy waste. Following these tips is the first step every developer can take to start making a difference, regardless of where they're hosted.

The frequent questions, brainstorms, and passionate conversations afterward confirmed that when it comes to an engaged and knowledgeable cloud-native audience, EdgeCase is second to none. Hustling to and fro, from practical workshops to inspiring talks, knowledge was shared, and ultimately it was a great, if tiring, time for all involved.

Special thanks to our fellow sponsors SUSECivo, and of course Fullstaq. And let's not forget our awesome MC & Host, Bart Farrell. We can’t wait for an even bigger EdgeCase 2023.
