Join us at Operator Day, hosted by Canonical at KubeCon Europe 2023


Speakers will talk about their software operator journey, from configuration management to application management.

What are software operators?

Software operators are crucial in the Kubernetes landscape. A software operator encapsulates the knowledge and expertise of a real-world operations team and codifies it into a dedicated piece of software. Software operators help human operators and administrators run their applications efficiently and effectively. Before the introduction of Kubernetes, Canonical had started to apply software operators to any application running on metal or VMs.

Today, the generalised software operator pattern implemented by Canonical meets all deployment scenarios at scale with a fully open-source-based platform: Juju, the Charmed Operator Framework. Juju can be applied across Kubernetes clusters, containers, virtual machines, and bare metal machines, on public or private clouds.

What is Operator Day?

We launched Operator Day to share our learnings and insights about software operators at the KubeCon North America conference in 2020. Since then, we have proudly hosted 5 Operator Day events with a variety of sessions covering the basics behind operators, what they are, how to use them, how to create them and how your team can benefit from them. If you missed the past events, you could freely access recordings from the sessions on YouTube.

Join us at the 6th edition of Operator Day at KubeCon Europe

KubeCon is the flagship conference of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).  It’s a bi-annual event in Europe and North America, with presentations, sessions, tutorials and hands-on demos for open-source communities building cloud-native applications. It is the most significant event for cloud-native computing and has seen more than 15,000 registrations in the past.  The next edition will take place at the RAI convention centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands from 17 April to 21 April 2023. 

The 6th Operator Day will take place on the first day of the KubeCon week, Monday, 17 April 2023. The event is entirely virtual. You can dial in from anywhere and see the presentations where software operators have been applied successfully across the entire stack: on VMs, private clouds, public clouds or in a multi-cloud scenario.
