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. I'm a member of the Open UK Board. I was chair of the CNCF's Technical Oversight Committee 2019-2022, and I co-chaired the KubeCon / CloudNativeCon 2018 events in Copenhagen, Shanghai and Seattle.
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.
As well as my own Medium posts, I've written for numerous sites and magazines such as Increment and The New Stack. I'm also an O'Reilly author - check out my books on Container Security, What is eBPF, Kubernetes Security (co-authored with Michael Hausenblas), or my guide to Containerizing your Go Code.
