We're Cloud Native Wales and we want to talk all things Cloud Native!
After a successful Kubernetes 101 workshop, we're opening the floor for people to share their experiences.
We have two (possibly three) speakers lined up (talk descriptions to follow closer to the event).
We will always have at least one local speaker (so if you're interested in giving a talk then drop us an message!). We also plan to headline with one 'out of town' speaker who will come and share their experiences.
The organisers of the event are heading to KubeCon and CloudNativeCon the week before the Meetup, so will share news and swag from the event.
The talks are focused on sharing ideas and experiences, not selling them.
After the talks, we'll be going to the pub(s) for a Post-Meetup Cool Down.
## Who is this for

We're not associated with any company and want to keep the Meetup agnostic to any technology. In doing so, we have a low budget and would be grateful for any sponsors to help support the community.
We're looking for sponsorship for:
* Venue hire
* Food / drink
* Speaker accommodation / travel expenses
In return, we will promote your business at the event and within the Meetup group, we value your support!
