Our hosts had such fun playing Kubernetes CTF with Lewis Denham-Parry that they’ve invited him back for another go-round! This time we will see more advanced security scenarios, and the game will be co-lead by James Cleverley-Prance. Come laugh, play, and learn with us!

James Cleverley-Prance

James works as a Cloud Native Security Engineer at Control Plane. In his day to day, he focuses on static and dynamic security assessments covering cloud native, infrastructure as code, policy as code, CI/CD, and architecture appraisals. He specializes in offensive security, Kubernetes, and cloud native technologies. He has reviewed the security posture of numerous organizations' cloud infrastructure and systems across a variety of retail, financial, and regulated environments. James also enjoys participating and contributing to CTFs and community events, sharing experiences and ideas that he’s had in client engagements. This has led to him being closely involved with events such as KubeCon NA 2021 Security Days & BSides London CTFs.

Lewis Denham-Parry

Lewis Denham-Parry

Lewis works for Control Plane as the Head of Training, orchestrating the ocean of containers with Kubernetes whilst defending them from piratical attacks (which is usually from himself).

He co-founded Cloud Native Wales, an initiative to help people learn Cloud Native technologies and establish a community to support each other. When he’s not playing with tech, he’s busy trying to understand his children, trying to find a comfy chair to read a book or trying to find some snow to ski on.

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.

Whitney Lee

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!
