Kubernetes, DevOps and SRE the right way with Nana Janashia

What stuck with me from this chat with Nana is that curiosity and hunger for learning & sharing will bring you further than anything else.

In her case, learning Kubernetes and AWS and sharing that knowledge eventually lead to becoming Docker Captain, AWS Hero & CNCF Ambassador.

Those were never goals, but always a result of focussing on efforts.
In doing so she managed to grow a YouTube community of 700k subs.
