Learn cloud concepts with Whitney and her lightboard ϟ
Apr 28, 2022
We are going to talk about the best way for developers to up-level security skills so you never get stuck not understanding what a security exception means, and never again will you use trial and error to get something working. We will talk about how to do passwordless logins, and we’ll discuss key cryptography concepts all devs should know.

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!
