KubeCon Diversity Scholarships: A Story by Kris Nova
“In 2016 I attended my first KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Seattle, Washington. I was one of 5 diversity scholarship winners for the conference. The CNCF funded the trip, and the event dramatically changed my life. Almost 2 years later, I am now an ambassador of the CNCF and one of the members of the diversity committee. I contribute to Kubernetes, and am a published author. All thanks to the CNCF taking a chance on me and giving me an opportunity to participate.” -Kris Nova
The diversity scholarship deadline for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2018 closes March 2nd, so hurry up and apply!
