Google Kubernete’s new community lead: Sarah Novotny

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.
