    Repost: Dave Fogle and Kris Nova

    This is a repost of episode 12. Kris Nova passed away in a climbing accident on August 16. I thought it was fitting to repost this conversation I had with her and Dave Fogle about their experiences being homeless.
    There is a memorial for Kris on the Nivenly site. It's backed by a GitHub repo, if you'd like to share your memories of her.

    Original show notes:
    In this episode Rich speaks with Dave Fogle from Civo and Kris Nova from Twilio. Topics include: How Dave’s tweet “From homeless to Kubecon in 7 years” brought us together, Dave and Kris’s stories about how they became homeless, how they took care of their gear, their love of open source software and how they used it to level up, and how they transitioned from being on the street to tech jobs.
