Request for me to speak

If you would like to have me attend your event, please familiarize yourself with this page (bookmark if needed) then file an issue in the official issue tracker.

We can ask questions there, and if I can make it we will ultimately need someone to make a small PR to this repository so we can begin tracking the event.


Kris Nova, Chief Open Source Advocate at Sysdig, focuses on security, intrusion detection, and the Linux kernel with Kubernetes and eBPF. As an active advocate for open source, Nova is an ambassador for the CNCF and the creator of kubicorn, a successful Kubernetes infrastructure management tool.

Nova has a deep technical background in the Go programming language and has authored many successful open source tools in Go. Nova has organized many special interest groups in Kubernetes.

Nova lives in Seattle and spends her free time climbing mountains.


Food preference:

I try to focus on vegetarian/vegan meals but it's not a requirement. In general I am always able to take care of myself so please don't block on this.

Do you have a bio:

See above.

Best way to contact you:

I value brevity.

If you truly need me for something that you cannot find here you can email me.

I haven't heard back:

I am very busy, and it sometimes takes me weeks to follow up with someone. A gentle bump or ping reply on a thread is probably the most useful way to raise your concern again.

Please do not send multiple email threads about the same event or entity. I like to keep everything in 1 place.
