Her first commit to Kubernetes was made under a name she no longer uses, by a person who no longer exists. Until now she has done her best to keep this information a secret, and lives full time as a well known transgender engineer.

In this talk she publicly reveals the commit log for the first time, and tells her unique story about her personal journey with cloud native technologies. The fact that she has experienced cloud native from both sides of the gender spectrum gives her unique insight into the tooling, and more importantly the processes in place for contributing.

She draws striking parallels with her personal epiphanies in her career, with the maturity of the cloud native ecosystem by using three simple words: shame, adoption, victory.

The talk explores the three lessons in detail from the perspective of a veteran cloud native engineer. She hopes to inspire all.
