This morning, I joined the eCHO livestream to chat about a feature I worked on for the Cilium 1.12 release! Discussed delegated IPAM and my experience as a first-time contributor to the Cilium project.
On Sunday, I presented a lightning talk at the FOSDEM 2022 conference. Usually, FOSDEM takes place in Brussels, but recently it’s moved online. That was fortunate for me, because otherwise I probably would never have submitted a talk proposal!

From 2013-2015 I worked full-time on open source at edX. I’m still not quite sure how I got so lucky. My daughter was born in 2018! When she was three months old, I took a sabbatical to write a lot of Rust code for my master’s thesis at Harvard Extension School.
