CoreOS Through the Looking Glass - Software Circus 2020

CoreOS Through the Looking Glass - Software Circus 2020

I presented this at the Software Circus event in May 2020, which was virtual due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The conference theme was Alice in Wonderland, so the slides were created with that theme in mind.
Awaiting video to be published.
