So it finally happened yesterday…technical difficulties during our live streaming show, KBE Insider. We rolled with it…check out our unintentional podcast debut with Liz Rice, Chief Open Source Officer at Isovalent (creators of the Cilium eBPF-based networking project) and Chair of the CNCF’s Technical Oversight Committee.
Meet Cilium, that incubating project leveraging the four letter acronym eBPF
For those who may not know, Cilium is an open source software, fueled by the Kernel technology eBPF (Extended Berkeley Packet Filter), that provides networking, observability, and security for container workloads. Cilium is currently an incubating project with CNCF, check-out the full list of graduated and incubating CNCF projects here.
eBPF has been a topic of interest in the last few months for a lot of the use cases it supports. Our KBE Insider co-host Josh Berkus mentions, as a reviewer for KubeCon call for papers (CFP), he’s noticing a lot of speaking submissions on eBPF for KubeCon Europe. So don’t forget to look out for the approved eBPF sessions once the KubeCon Europe agenda is published. In the meantime learn more about eBPF and watch a demo on how to run eBPF programs with kubectl-trace (only prerequisite you need is to have a cluster running, which you can learn with our Kubernetes Fundamentals learning path).
Rescheduled - version 2.0 of KBE Insider with Liz Rice on 1/27 at 10:00 am ET (3:00 pm GMT)
As we attempted to reboot the system to crack the non-existent video, we killed the live stream (or podcast in this case). Just as we were going to talk to Liz about CNCF and get her inside scoop. Lucky for you, you’ll only have to wait a day. We were able to convince Liz to return for version 2.0 with the promise the video will work this time - set your reminder for tomorrow and subscribe to KBE Insider so you don’t miss any episodes or maybe podcasts.
