Google Kubernete’s new community lead: Sarah Novotny

November 30, 2015

A couple of weeks ago I attended KubeCon in San Francisco.  There were a series of talks as well as a bunch of vendors who were there in mini-booths chatting with folks and showing off what they do.  As always, the part I get the most out of at conferences like this is the “hallway track” where I get to chat one-on-one with various folks.

One such folk was Sarah Novotny, who recently joined Google as the first Kubernetes community lead.  Check out the video below where Sarah talks about her goals for the community, how it will fit with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and how she hopes to extend this beyond a Google only effort.

Introducing Kubernetes 1.0 and the Cloud Native Computing foundation

July 22, 2015

This morning at OSCON a special event was held to announce the launch of Kubernetes 1.0 (Google’s open source container management framework) as well as the introduction of the Cloud Native Computing foundation.

One of the key speakers at the event was Craig McLuckie of Google who is a founding member of Kubernetes’ team.  Craig has also been working with the Linux Foundation to set up the Cloud Native Computing foundation.

I sat down with Craig for a quick chat regarding both of these efforts.

Some of the ground Craig covers:

  • Craig’s role at Google and his relationship with Kubernetes
  • Today’s announcement as it relates to both Kubernetes 1.0 and the Cloud Native Computing foundation.
  • Where does Craig see Kubernetes going over the next year and what new workloads will it run
