What is important to me
Mental, philosophical, and design diversity. Period.
I truly believe that the best teams and projects are those that embrace unique and sometimes conflicting ways of thinking.
Having a leadership board of people who all think the same way, and all are moving in the right direction is stale and stagnant.
- I want to help foster diversity in Kubernetes in both our design process, but also our goals and philosophies.
- I want to encourage my peers to put themselves into difficult, or testing situations in order to help grow and mature.
- I want to let others know that it’s okay to try something and fail as we all learn as a scientific community.
- I spend as much of my free time as humanly possible contributing to Kubernetes.
- I take impromptu video calls with total strangers.
- I helped run sig-aws even though it conflicted with my dayjob.
- I created kubicorn in my free time and it has been reviewed as one of the best open source projects to contribute to in the space.
Reasons to pick me
I think differently.
I question the world around me, and have been in a ton of different roles in engineering space. Including time in both genders.
I believe that software comes first.
I love kubernetes regardless of my employer, and will always contribute because I believe in it.
I believe the way we continue to keep the project great is to focus on community, as well as writing kick ass software with a great user interface.
I embrace being different and want to clean up our code and improve user experience.
