Events

Kubernetes Contributor Awards

Kubernetes SIG Co-Chairs and Tech Leads would like for you to attend this special event where we honor and dedicate the hard work that the community has been working on. These peer awards are a tradition at the Kubernetes Contributor Summits so we are bringing them virtual, please join us to thank and support all the people who have worked hard to help us this year.

Most Extreme Kubernetes Challenge - DevOps Party Game

Join Ian Coldwater along with Jeremy Meiss as they host a special edition of the DevOps Party Game. We will have Kubernetes questions and panelists to take this variation of a party game to another level! There will be two sessions to cover time zones, and we’ll be broadcasting this to the Kubernetes YouTube channel. Audience participation makes this a fun time for all attendees!

We will be giving away lots of great prizes!

Games

For Linux players, there are no game specific instructions, but many can run on Linux through proton

NOTE: These are attendee suggestion driven and should not be considered an endorsement for the Kubernetes project as a whole.

Among Us

Game Site

Platforms: PC (Steam / itch.io) | Android | iOS

NOTE: It’s Cross-Platform!

Join your crewmates in a multiplayer game of teamwork and betrayal!

Play online with 4-10 community members as you attempt to hold your spaceship together and return back to civilization. But beware…as there may be alien impostors aboard!

One or two crewmates have been replaced by parasitic shapeshifters. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostors will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.

While everyone is fixing up the ship, no one can talk to maintain anonymity. Once a body is reported, the surviving crew will openly debate who they think The Impostor is. The Impostors’ goal is to pretend that they are a member of the crew. If The Impostor is not voted off, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If The Impostors are voted off, the crew wins!

Reporting: There is no in-game reporting mechanism. If there is an issue with a Kubernetes community member, please use the /report command or contact the CoCC directly.

Animal Crossing

Game Site

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

“Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create, and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts. You can hunt down insects at the crack of dawn, decorate your paradise throughout the day, or enjoy sunset on the beach while fishing in the ocean. The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round.

Show off your island utopia to family and friends—or pack your bags and visit theirs. Whether playing online* or with others beside you**, island living is even better when you can share it. Even without hopping on a flight, you’ll meet a cast of charming animal residents bursting with personality. Friendly faces like Tom Nook and Isabelle will lend their services and happily help you grow your budding community. Escape to your island getaway—however, whenever, and wherever you want.” - Nintendo

Destiny 2

Game Site

Platforms: PC ([Steam][d2-steam]) | Xbox | Playstation | Stadia

Destiny is a multiplayer scifi/fantasy space shooter game with lots of guns and space super powers. Players can team up in 3 person squads for missions called strikes, 4 player teams for Gambit, and up to 6v6 in player-vs-player.

Preparation: The base game is free to play, however there is no cross play, so we’ll have to group up by platform. Download the game before the event since it’s about 70GB. You’ll probably want to do the tutorial campaign ahead of time to get a feel for the game. Ideally complete enough of the introduction to be able to head to “The Tower”.

Reporting: Reporting can be done via the “Roster” tab in game. Generally speaking chat is done via third party tools so other than player usernames you don’t typically chat with other players. If there is an issue with a Kuberntes community member, please use the /report command or contact the CoCC directly.

Guides / New Player Coaches: Jorge Castro (PC), Allison Downey(PC),and Wayne Witzel(PC)

Fall Guys

Game Site

Platforms: PC (Steam) | Playstation

Up to 60 players compete in matches with battle royale-style gameplay. Players, represented as jellybean-like figures, move around a three-dimensional playing field, with additional moves such as jumping, grabbing/climbing, or diving to assist gameplay. The aim is to qualify for subsequent rounds by successfully completing each of the randomly selected mini-games. Certain mini-games involve running towards a finish line at the end of the map, while others add elements of teamwork. On every mini-game, obstacles appear around the map for added complexity. Players who are too slow or who fail certain requirements for a mini-game are eliminated. On the final round, the remaining few players compete in a final match with a randomised mini-game designed for a smaller player size. The winner of the match is the last player standing.

Reporting: There is no in-game reporting mechanism. If there is an issue with a Kubernetes community member, please use the /report command or contact the CoCC directly.
