Title: External Secrets Operator: A Cloud Native way to manage your secrets

Managing secrets in Kubernetes can be a cumbersome job. How do you store and rotate your credentials currently in your project? With External Secrets Operator (ESO for short) we leverage multi-featured solutions like AWS Secret Manager and Vault to manage your sensitive data declaratively and securely. You end up with native Kubernetes secrets in your cluster, synchronized continuously with your external provider. In this presentation, we are going to talk about how a community formed around it, based on different projects that wanted to solve the same problem. A new open-source central solution was developed with the help of this community. The first half of the talk will be us telling you this story, and the second half will be a demo of ESO in action.
