Hi. I’m Ellen Körbes. I’m a software developer based in Brazil.

I’m currently working as an intern software developer on the Kubernetes SIG-CLI group, more specifically messing around with kubectl create functionality. This internship was made possible thanks to Outreachy and CNCF.

And also I’m currently producing a Portuguese-language version of the most watched Golang course ever, together with Todd McLeod and Greater Commons.

I really enjoy speaking in public. My first talk ever is up on my YouTube channel right now; more to be added soon.

Sometimes people refer to me as “the girl who made the kubicorn website.” It’s cute, check it out.

My go-to coding soundtrack is TimeCop1983.

And in the past I’ve played classical violin for a living, wrote way too much dystopian fiction, and ran a restaurant.

Say hi on Twitter!
