What we're about

Kubernetes Philly is the official Kubernetes meetup for Philadelphia and the surrounding area. We host talks from anyone doing cool things with Kubernetes, including companies using K8s in production or vendors who are pushing the boundaries of what K8s can do. Presentations are demo-focused and not sales pitches.

This group follows these three central ideas:

• We believe in open sponsorships, so anyone can cover the cost of food, space, and travel for speakers. Organizations donating speakers, food/drinks, or space will automatically count as sponsors for the event.

• We believe in the democratized organization, so anyone in the Kubernetes community that wants to help organize can be a part of the process.

• We believe that all Kubernetes Meetups should be democratic and those that do not allow others to take part in organizing and sponsoring are not in the spirit of open source.

To become an organizer, sponsor, or speaker, please reach out to us!

If you would like to present at Kubernetes Philly you can submit a session here (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1apnBZ2C9BTxR_04wwyxQHVEPVn0f40ieqSvyjXDA-rw).

In this presentation, Jim Bugwadia a co-founder at Nirmata and maintainer at Kyverno, will discuss how policy management can help address these concerns and make it easier to secure and automate Kubernetes configurations. Jim will then present Kyverno, a CNCF sandbox project which is a policy management solution designed for Kubernetes, and demonstrate how Kyverno can be used to secure and automate Kubernetes configurations.
