Intro to Kubeflow: Pipelines Training and Certification Recap – March 16, 2022

On March 16th we hosted the “Intro to Kubeflow: Pipelines Training and Certification prep course. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the class, plus give a summary of the Q&A. Ok, let’s dig in!


Congratulations to Rakesh Arumalla!

The first attendee to earn the “Pipelines” certificate at the conclusion of the course was Rakesh Arumalla who works at Red Ventures. A free MiniKF hoodie and shirt is on the way, well done!


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 Society of Women Engineers. It is a not-for-profit educational and service organization that empowers women to succeed and advance in engineering and be recognized for their life-changing contributions as engineers and leaders. 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!
