The company’s cloud-based Electronic Data Capture (EDC) platform makes it possible for medical researchers to collect data without requiring elaborate training or technical skills and it employed EDC Kubernetes for a number of pilots. Groenen will talk about the lessons learned from the pilots and the follow-up steps of this scale-up.

Daniël de Groot, who is the Teamlead for Containers & Kubernetes at True will deliver the third talk. He documented the failures developers face while working with Kubernetes and developed a private beta program for covering this.
