My post KubeCon thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ

One of the many reasons I never feel down is that I see what impacts me and whom I impact.

Last week at KubeCon Europe, I felt truly blessed to be recognized by folks worldwide for my contributions. CEOs, founders, and tech geniuses came up to me and hit me with the "your content is great!". I believe there's still a lot for me to learn. There are so many creators that I look up to every day. Imposter syndrome is something I do not suffer from because when I find myself in a place where I don't know much about something, I take that as an opportunity to learn from others and contribute.


During KubeCon, I also crossed 200K subscribers on YouTube and 80k on Twitter. It was also amazing to see so many students attend the event. This is something I worked with the CNCF on a few months before the event.

A year ago, this was hard to imagine as a student. Yet, the community is so kind, supportive, and encouraging. It was also my first in-person talk at KubeCon and third overall. The team I get to work with at Civo is fantastic. This year, I also spent majority of my time staffing the Civo booth, which in itself was a great experience.

I owe everything to open source. The opportunities that I am getting are off the roof.This has been a good month. There are still many things to be done, but we are getting there, and we're on the right track.

For students who are reading, I just recommend you to do these things, and everything will fall into place:

  1. Study (ofc) and apply that somewhere.
  2. Take guidance from folks who are active globally. They have seen how the world works.
  3. Be humble and practice gratitude as well as empathy.

Thanks, everyone.
