Scheduled Speakers

With Kiwi Pycon X kicking off in Wellington on Friday the 23rd, we're featuring a couple of PyCon speakers at the WOSSAT August meeting. One is doing a preview of his Kiwi PyCon talk and the other is reprising her PyConAU talk:

  • Fei Long Wang — Building a production-ready managed Kubernetes service

    Fei Long is Head of R&D at Catalyst Cloud, and Project team lead on OpenStack Container Infrastructure Management service (Magnum). In this talk he will share Catalyst’s public cloud journey in building a production ready managed Kubernetes service on top of OpenStack.

  • Opal Symes — You might not need gender!

    This talk will dive into the world of gender and the abounding misconceptions. We have a duty to build systems that allow people to truly represent themselves, and to do this requires an understanding of how to properly store and handle that information.

    Opal is a Python developer who dabbles in system administration, Rust and sewing.
