Crafting Kubernetes Custom Controllers With Angela Chin

In this episode

Custom controllers and custom resource definitions are all the rage in Kubernetes today! In conjunction, they allow users to extend the Kubernetes API and introduce additional features. In this session, we’ll explore both custom resource definitions and custom controllers by trying out popular projects that allow us to craft a new controller from scratch!


Angela Chin

Angela Chin is a Senior Engineer at VMware, working on Tanzu Application Service (for both VMs and Kubernetes!).

She has worked on the project in one form or another for the past 4 years and is an active contributor to the Cloud Foundry Foundation. Since COVID-19 has given her ample free time, she has taken up baking and long runs to balance each other out.


Bob Brindley

Bob Brindley travels the world spreading the good word according to Tanzu and Spring to any and all that will hear.

He has been a developer advocate for five years and still smells terrific.

Tiffany Jernigan

Tiffany is a senior developer advocate at VMware and is focused on Kubernetes. She previously worked as a software developer and developer advocate (nerd whisperer) for containers at Amazon. She also formerly worked at Docker and Intel. Prior to that, she graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in electrical engineering. In her free time she likes to spend time with her fiancé, family, and friends, as well as dabble in photography. You can find her on Twitter @tiffanyfayj.

Paul Czarkowski

Paul Czarkowski is a long-time practitioner of the dark arts of DevOps. Hailing from Australia, he moved to Austin,Texas to help build and run one of the largest and most successful online games. Now at VMware, Paul works to improve the operator experience by taking cloud native software development concepts and applying them to operations to create platforms that reduce toil and improve software delivery.
