About this event

Presentation 1: We will touch on and go over what I think are some pretty cool opensource projects to watch out for that were highlighted at Kubecon NA 2020.

Speaker 1: Cody has spent 16 years promoting OSS projects in enterprises and startups. He's worked for notable startups such as Sysdig and most recently StormForge (formerly Carbon Relay) where he builds out and manages professional services organizations. He is a Kubernetes core contributor as well as an organizer of the Kubernetes Austin meetup.

Presentation 2: Kubeflow Update Presentation and Demonstration

In this ~30 minute presentation and demonstration, attendees will learn about the Kubeflow mission statement, the Kubeflow 1.2 release, Kubeflow components, common operational gaps in supporting a Kubeflow stack, software stacks for enterprise-grade kubeflow, what’s coming in Kubeflow 1.3 and how to get involved in the Kubeflow Community. The demonstration will provide a brief review of valuable ML workflows i.e. how to deploy and monitor an ML model, along with the automated process to build a kubeflow pipeline that will train and tune an ML model.

Speaker 2: Josh Bottum, Kubeflow Community Product ManagerJosh is currently a Kubeflow Community Product Manager and a VP of Community Relations at Arrikto. Since Kubeflow v0.5, Josh has helped to improve the Kubeflow user experience by volunteering to triage GitHub issues, conduct user surveys, gather requirements/roadmaps, and summarize Kubeflow releases in blog posts, demonstrations and presentations. Arrikto is a major code contributor to the open-source Kubeflow Community project.
