2022 has been a roller-coaster ride for Devtron. We are witnessing immense interest from the Open-source community in adopting Devtron as their defacto platform for managing and executing Kubernetes. While we saw an increase in OSS adoption we were able to successfully grow our clientele.
Diwali came with a gift: Series A funding of $12Mn to further our vision of providing DevOps practices with a new spin and simplifying application building and deployment with Kubernetes at the core. At the same time, we sponsored events like DevOpsDays India, Hacktoberfest by DigitalOcean, and KCD Chennai. We also conducted went on team excursions to Srinagar.
Here is a recount of some achievements and noteworthy milestones that we have achieved in 2022.

DevOpsDays India at Bangalore was a part of an international series of technical conferences covering software development, IT infrastructure operations, and much more. Speakers and attendees come from diverse organizations to attend the event. Devtron was a proud sponsor at that event. Abhinav Dubey had a chance to demonstrate to an audience of over 300 people how easy it can be to set up pipelines and build highly resilient, scalable infrastructure using Devtron.

First Offsite Since Covid
Post covid, we had our first team meet and offsite in Jun '22, which allowed us to meet and know each other. Hence it was decided to have an exploratory offsite at Kashmir with no agenda. We had Bonfire, barbecue dinner, and a small trek to Pari Mahal with a lavish dinner at Adooz! The experience was terrific; everyone opened up to their most authentic form. Exploring the beauty of Kashmir and enjoying the sunset during the Shikara ride felt enlivening.
The second Offsite of 2022
The second offsite planned in Oct '22 was again about rediscovering oneself. With this objective, the location was consciously chosen amidst nature at Manesar, where the brimming sunlight gave warmth, and birds chirping kept the energy on! It was an eye-opener with different team-building activities, and towards the end, everyone knew that they had more to give than they knew. With that enlightenment, it was also about celebrating togetherness and sharing camaraderie. At Devtron, we strongly believe in giving our best and redefining our benchmarks! Such offsites always allow us to reflect, introspect, rediscover and resurrect our hidden potential.
