Engineer and Advocate


I enjoy working with free and open source software. I enjoy experimenting and trying new things with software.




  • Kubernetes
  • Kubicorn
  • Kubeadm
  • Terraform
  • Go
  • FreeBSD
  • Linux
  • Docker
  • C(++)

I enjoy climbing mountains and finding bugs!

My passions are pushing myself, and those around me. I believe in honest technology. My idea of a good first date is designing and drafting a new kernel from a glacier.

In an effort to help solve the Kubernetes infrastructure problem Nova created kubicorn in her spare time. More information can be found in the official GitHub repository or on the official docs site. She hopes to introduce the idea that infrastructure can be solved using clever cloud native software, and also hopes she can demonstrate techniques on how to build a healthy open source community.

She has a few tutorials on getting Kubernetes up and running with kubicorn that can be found here.

The project is intentionally built and hosted outside of the Kubernetes public space, in order to demonstrate that anyone can work on Kubernetes projects wherever they would like.





Cloud Native Infrastructure

Kris Nova co authored a book with Justin Garrison called Cloud Native Infrastructure.

The book looks at many of the lessons Kris and Justin both have learned over their careers at solving DevOps and Infrastructure related problems in the field. Kris has given many presentations on the manner, and continues to speak for the idea that infrastructure should now be encapsulated as software.

The book is available for sale and more information can be found on cnibook.info.
