Ahmet Alp Balkan
I am a Seattle-based Staff Software Engineer at Twitter, working on moving your favorite social network's compute footprint to a Kubernetes-based infrastructure. Prior to this job, I’ve worked at Google, working on creating open source tools around Kubernetes/GKE and Google Cloud Run. I've been in open source since 2010, and as a full-time job between 2016-2020. My work that I’m most proud of is bridging Docker to the Windows ecosystem. Nowadays, I maintain several popular Kubernetes client tools on my GitHub account in my spare time.
