Sep 22, 2022

In this episode

GitOps with Flux brings you security, reliability, velocity and more - no more pagers on Saturdays! No more breaches to the cluster that you can’t roll back. No more worrying about how you’ll fare in the next security audit. Pinky & Mae will share an overview of Flux and how it works, as well as their personal experience on why Flux has been an essential part of achieving a best-in-class delivery and platform team.

Whitney Lee

Whitney traveled the scenic route but is chuffed to have found her way to Kubernetes and cloud technologies. Whitney began her professional career as a fine artist before owning her own photography business for over a decade. After a year-long tour playing keys in the band Mutual Benefit, Whitney went back to school in 2019 to learn full-stack web development. After graduation, Whitney was employed by IBM as a cloud developer, using none of the skills she had just learned. She developed an insatiable appetite for all things cloud, and a passion for teaching others as she acquired knowledge herself. Whitney has made many cloud-related lightboard videos that together have 400,000+ views. At VMware, you can find Whitney writing lighthearted yet informative guides, or behind the lightboard during her weekly streaming show ϟ Enlightning. Whitney’s contagious excitement drives her to collaborate and play!
