About our speakers and topics

Michael O'Leary is the organizer of this group and attended KubeCon 2022. I'll share what I learned and I hope to hear what you learned.

Kevin Dorosh is currently a tech lead at Solo.io. Formerly a big data infra admin at HubSpot, Kevin is passionate about the infrastructure space and giving to the community, with contributions to many open source projects such as Envoy, Istio, Flagger, and Gloo. Kevin enjoys working with customers and community users on real problems facing them today, and is excited to help bring organizations to Envoy, Istio, and a more modern, cloud-native, tech stack.

Michael Martino is an Enterprise Architect at Zerto, helping customers protect their virtual environments and understand their many recovery options. He has over 20 years of IT experience with subject matter expertise in data protection, automation, and architecting virtual environments as well as the public clouds.


This event is in-person. There's no remote option this time. We will join the Boston Kubernetes Meetup event 

Many meetup groups went dormant during Covid and this Boston chapter of the CNCF Community group hasn't met in a long time. However we know that folks working with Kubernetes are eager to share with colleagues, and those just starting out and learning need a place to network and learn more also. 

I hope to see you at this event. Please RSVP because I'll need your first and last name for check in.
