I love making, understanding & explaining code
My background and core competence is systems software engineering, but I love the whole process of building products. I've been in startups that have succeeded and others that have failed. I enjoy writing code, and understanding how other people will use it.
I'm Chief Open Source Officer with eBPF pioneers Isovalent, creators of the Cilium project, which provides cloud native networking, observability and security. Prior to that I was VP Open Source Engineering with security specialists Aqua Security. I'm chair of the CNCF's Technical Oversight Committee, and I co-chaired the KubeCon / CloudNativeCon 2018 events in Copenhagen, Shanghai and Seattle. I'm also an Ambassador for Open UK.
Container Security book
I’ve written a book published by O’Reilly, called Container Security: Fundamental Technology Concepts that Protect Containerized Applications. Support independent bookstores by buying your copy from Bookshop.org!
Where I get over my British reserve and admit that I'm pretty good at these
I spent the first, well, many years of my professional life writing and architecting portable network stack implementations. I love and understand how to make clean, well-architected code. I now run the Open Source team at Aqua Security - check out our new YouTube channel!
Containers, Kubernetes and security
I've been working with containers for several years. I'm a fan of Kubernetes and, since joining Aqua, I've learned a thing or two about the security aspects of using containers and distributed systems.
