About this event

Hello NYC Kubernauts!

We’re very excited about our September event. This month, we're headed back to the ASAPP offices at One World Trade Center. You’ll want to bring a government issued ID and match your meetup profile name with it.

First up, longtime group member Alberto Torres will introduce his open-source project tattletale (, a Kubernetes operator that uses Custom Resources to keep Kubernetes Secrets & ConfigMaps in-sync across namespaces. He will discuss the challenges he encountered and lessons learned while working on tattletale, his first project in the Kubernetes ecosystem and his first project using golang.

Then, Justin Cappos from NYU will give us a peek into the efforts of CNCF's SIG-Security - learn what it is and how you can contribute.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Alberto Torres is a Platform Engineer at Jetblack (the first portfolio company within Store Nº8, the incubation arm of Walmart). Prior to joining Jetblack in December 2018, he was the Lead DevOps Engineer at LedgerX (the first federally regulated crypto-currency options exchange). Outside of work, he enjoys cooking, playing Frisbee, singing and more recently writing Kubernetes operators.

Justin Cappos is a professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department at New York University, who strives to provide service to society through technology. Justin's research philosophy focuses on solving real world security problems in practice. He and his students often focus on problems in security, systems, software update systems, and virtualization, with an emphasis on practical research advances that can be used in production. His research advances are adopted into production use by Docker, git, Python, VMware, Cloudflare, Microsoft, Digital Ocean, automobiles, and most Linux distributions. Due to the practical impact of his work, Justin was named to Popular Science's Brilliant 10 list in 2013.


We’ll be hosting at One World Trade Center, which is a building that takes security seriously. You’ll want to insure you arrive with a government issued ID, and that your meetup profile name matches that ID, as that is what we’ll be sharing with the front-desk as our attendee list.

The meetup map is a little glitchy, so the actual address is:
80th FLOOR
NEW YORK, NY 10007

You’ll want to use one of the SIDE entrances to join us at the meetup. There should be side entrances on the Fulton St side or the Vesey St. If you find yourself inside of the One World Observatory with a big line of tourists, you’re in the wrong place. Exit and find an entrance from Fulton or Vesey.
