This is important for ▓╩Ă▒TCG for Windows┬áand ▓╩Ă▒TCG for Mac┬ábecause we want them to be the easiest way for you to develop your applications for ▓╩Ă▒TCG and for Kubernetes. Without being able to easily test your application and importantly its configuration, locally you always risk the dreaded ÔÇťworks on my machineÔÇŁ┬ásituation.
With this announcement following hot on the heels of the release last week of ▓╩Ă▒TCG Enterprise Edition┬á2.0 and itÔÇÖs Kubernetes support, itÔÇÖs perfect timing for us to be heading off to KubeCon EU in Copenhagen next week. If youÔÇÖre interested in why weÔÇÖre adopting Kubernetes, or in what we have planned next, please come find us on booth #S-C30,┬ásign up for the ┬áor attend the .
