Quick Addition:

We're blessed to have Ryan Quackenbush in town today and he volunteered to give his KubeCon presentation of K8s Port at the beginning of our meetup.  


Recognizing the contributions made to the Kubernetes community has never been easier. By directly engaging them through a simple, gamified, performance-based system and by implementing an integration with GitHub, we’re highlighting work that’s being done amongst the members automatically.


Ryan Quackenbush is Apprenda's resident Advocacy professional. After successfully building and driving Apprenda's internal social media and community amplification hub, he’s created the Kubernetes Portal (@k8sport) to recognize and reward individuals that have made Kubernetes into the defacto standard of container orchestration. When not impersonating Ted Theodore Logan, he lives in the Capital region of New York rooting for the Mets with his wife. Follow him on twitter at @rsquackenbush
