About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts!

We hope you'll wrap-up February by joining us for this month's NYCK8s.

First, Michael Stella from JW Player who will take us through how their engineering team was able to resolve a number of organizational challenges using Kubernetes. The talk will cover RBAC, secrets management, blue/green deployment strategies, multi-region support, GPU computing, and DNS record creation - yeah, tons of goodness.

Then, we have long time group member Dan "POP" Papandrea from Sysdig stopping in to show us all the latest and greatest on Secure, Falco (OSS) and Kube Audit. If you're interested in security - and the correct answer is always yes, stop in to learn more.

We hope you'll join us.

Oh - one more thing. Are you a local group member interested in presenting to the group, submit your talk here :
