Nigel's Kubernetes Pub Quiz...

… is a great way for your company to hang-out together in a relaxed atmosphere, have some fun and learn about Kubernetes via this fun team building activity.

Nigel hosts a Kahoot’s style Kubernetes quiz (either play along individually or in teams – that’s your choice!) where you can test your container knowledge… and who knows you might just learn something new… whilst having a few laughs all together.

Also, in and amongst the quiz, this is a great opportunity for you to pick a topical containers subject of interest (chosen in advance) for your team to learn about from Nigel. Have a look at the typical agenda as this just might be for you.

A typical agenda can look like this

  • Intros and shout-outs
  • Quiz round 1: ~15 or so fun K8s questions
  • Topic discussion: Let’s chat on a topic like service mesh, serverless, etc.
  • Quiz round 2: ~15 or so more K8s questions
  • Free chat: More talking with either Nigel in what could be an intimate and spontaneous Q&A
  • Last orders: Banter

How the Pub Quiz started and where it's heading

The Kubernetes Pub Quiz started out as a cool and easy way for the tech community to hang-out in a “no pressure” environment for the purpose of learning about Kubernetes in a fun way. We weren’t sure how the term “pub quiz” would translate or how well it would be understood around the world, but it became an instant success that started to grow with rapid popularity as people just loved this unique way of learning. 

It was such a hit that this simple virtual hang-out quickly developed into companies asking Nigel to host either in-house or virtual pub quizzes for team building events or as part of their annual events.

With all of the laughs that easily come from these relaxed conditions, it doesn’t matter whether you join either one the quizzes for individuals or one the company events, people love this chilled chance to learn about Kubernetes whilst having fun.
