democratize cloud computing
Sarah Novotny leads the Kubernetes Community Program for Google. She has long been an Open Source community champion in communities such as NGINX and MySQL and ran large scale technology infrastructures before web-scale had a name. In 2001, she co-founded Blue Gecko, which was sold to DatAvail in 2012. She has curated teams, been a leader in customer communities focused on high availability web application and platform delivery and is a program chair emeritus for O’Reilly Media’s OSCON.
Novotny talks obsessively about people, technology infrastructure and geek lifestyle.
