Team Flux at KubeCon

There will be lots more of Team Flux in the crowds: contributors, advocates, friends, implementers and folks in adjacent communities we work a lot with. Find them at our physical booth or in all of the sessions listed below.

All right, how about these folks above? They will all give sessions, MC the events and coordinate all the things.

  • Priyanka “Pinky” Ravi has been speaking about her experience as a DevOps Engineer a lot lately. She gathered a lot of experience working at a large insurance institution and helped them transition to Flux and GitOps. Since then she has been a recurring guest at Weave Online User Group, GitOps Days and elsewhere.
  • Stefan Prodan is the creator of Flagger and has been a core maintainer of Flux since Weaveworks donated the project to CNCF. He is a maintainer of SMI and he's been part of Team Flux for 4+ years already. He is also the owner of a very cute dog.
  • Scott Rigby is a maintainer of Flux and Helm, and one of the chairs of OpenGitOps. He knows the ecosystem very well, contributed a lot to all these projects and was one of the driving forces behind Flux Governance.
  • Philips Laine is a core maintainer of Flux as well and among other things founded the terraform-provider-flux project.
  • Vanessa Abankwah is pulling all the strings behind the scenes. Not only did she organise all of our presence at KubeCon, but lots and lots of meetups and events where Team Flux was present.
  • Max Jonas Werner is a core maintainer of Flux as well and makes sure that Flux works great in D2iQ’s DKP platform. Apart from that he is interested in landing OCI support in Flux and loads more.

Everyone is looking forward to meeting you! πŸ’–
