What we’re about


I wanted to reach out with a warm welcome and a brief introduction.

My goal as the organizer is to help accelerate the learning curve for folks that want to learn about containers, kubernetes, cloud technologies and modern applications.  My hope is to foster a community of peers so we can learn from each other, and advance our understanding of cloud native technologies.

I'm a technologist who has been in the industry for over 20 years. I am currently working for Portworx as a Cloud Architect.  I am truly passionate about technology and ever curious to learn and share my experience.

I look forward to meeting many of you!

If you have ideas regarding venues, have content you want to share, or access to a large conference room or meeting space please let me know!
