It’s Only Hard Parts Now: Harnessing Community to Thrive in a World of Complexity
We used to operate in a world of complicated technical systems - systems which, even if they were difficult to understand, were knowable. Over the past decade, however, we have transitioned from complicated systems to complex systems. A complex system and the way it integrates and interacts with other complex systems is not fully knowable by any one person, one company, or even one industry. The only way to operate within a world of complex systems is through cultivating a community of varying experiences, knowledge, and observations. Come to this talk to hear stories from technical communities - including the Rust Community, The Covid-19 Cyber Threat Intelligence League, and the U.S. Marine Corps Cyber Auxiliary - and how they work together to fulfill their missions not in spite of complex systems but through those systems. Learn how you can take lessons from these communities and apply them to your own.

Once Upon a Time in Kubernetes Operator land…
…I really wanted to build an Operator to control some resources in my cluster. After some trial and error I got things to work, and it took me many a moon to understand what was going on. Many documents were read, and many blogs were parsed, and finally I was able to understand what was going on. Then, I decided that for this story to have a happy ending, I was going to do a live demo of what Kubernetes Operators are, how they work, and how you can run them locally, and in your cluster. So come read this amazing code with me, laugh while I fumble through typos, cry with me when our code doesn’t compile, and finally, rejoice when we both create an operator together during this tale!
