Talk #1

GitOps in a regulated environment by Per Hedegaard Christiansen, Saxo Bank


GitOps is a software delivery and operations approach that can improve speed and reliability.
In financial regulated environments, it can help ensure compliance and reduce errors through version control and automated deployment.
However, careful planning and coordination are needed to ensure security and reliability.


Per is a highly experienced IT professional with over 20 years of expertise in System Administration, Development, and Architecture.
He currently serves as the Chief Container Platform Engineer at Saxo Bank, leading the development of a cutting-edge Kubernetes platform for on-prem and cloud environments.

Talk #2

Unleashing the Power of Kyverno: A Deep Dive into Kubernetes Policy Management by Jinhong Brejnholt, VELUX


Kyverno, as the absolute favourite security engine in Kubernetes, has gained a tremendous traction lately.
In this talk, we will go through how VELUX utilises Kyverno doing security control and much more.
There will be real life examples, live demos and fun (I promise) discussions - you can have your money back otherwise.


Jinhong is a hands-on cloud and platform developer/architect. She is passionate about DevSecOps practice and Cloud native technologies.
She holds MSc. in Software Development and Technology, and is a certified Kubernetes application developer, administrator and security specialist.

Currently she works as the lead cloud architect at VELUX. Besides working with platform and application teams to develop and maintain the Kubernetes and Kafka platforms, she advocates for a sustainable and compliant way of developing and managing applications and integrations.
