We're back at it! It is the annual resume building workshop at the Tracy Developer Meetup!
Every year we meet to refresh our resumes and stay ahead of the game in case job opportunities in the technical space come around. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a job change or not, it is still valuable to be prepared.
What you'll need for this event:
- A few physical copies of your resume to share with the group.
- A digital copy of your resume to present to the group.
We don't often have recruiters show up to the group, but we've all been there when it comes to job hunting. This is meant to be a collaborative exercise to give you your best shot in the job market.
If you're nervous about your employer finding out that you're dusting off your resume, don't be. The Tracy Developer Meetup is a safe place!

Kubernetes (K8S) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containers. In this hands-on workshop, we'll cover everything you need to sound smart at a job interview and begin your Kubernetes learning journey. Our journey will begin with explaining what Kubernetes is, and how application infrastructure evolved to get us to this point. We'll have hand-on demos that cover: building a container with our own code, deploying containers to a Kubernetes cluster, deploying complex applications with the Helm Package Manager, how people see our cluster with Kubernetes Networking, and other common Kubernetes API Objects.
Since this is a hands-on workshop, please bring a laptop or other computer capable of connecting to WiFi and connecting to a computer via SSH. The speaker will provide a work environment in the public cloud for all students.
