Intro to Kubeflow: Katib Training and Certification Recap – March 30, 2022

On March 30th we hosted the “Intro to Kubeflow: Katib Training and Certification prep course. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the class.

 

First, thanks for voting for your favorite charity!

With the unprecedented circumstances facing our global community, Arrikto is looking for even more ways to contribute. With this in mind, we thought that in lieu of swag we could give workshop attendees the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity and help guide our monthly donation to charitable causes. The charity that won this workshop’s voting was UNHCR. The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is a global organization working to save lives, protect rights and build a better future for refugees, internally displaced communities and stateless people. This charity helps ensure that Ukrainians forced to flee their homes are sheltered and safe. We are pleased to be making a donation of $100 to them on behalf of the Kubeflow community. Again, thanks to all of you who attended and voted!
