What a year!  In this final episode of the year, Nigel discusses his top 5 stories of the year.

He takes a look at stateful apps and workloads on Kubernetes, and the CSI framework; the idea of Kubernetes being the OS of the cloud; the Docker changes through the year that drew some community outrage; the return of in-person events with KubeCon 2021 North America; and finally all the Kubernetes certification news.

On November 11th ACM Tech Talks invited Nigel to give a presso to help you get excited about Kubernetes. Watch here.

Nigel joined SUSE Rancher for two events (AmericasEMEA) where you asked him anything about K8s. Watch along on either of the links.
