I am absolutely over the moon to announce that I’m joining the dreamers, tinkerers, creators, and mad scientists at Packet, an Equinix Company, as a Senior Developer Advocate.
Packet is the leader in automated bare metal focused on making infrastructure a competitive advantage for the world’s leading digital businesses by pairing developer-friendly bare metal with a trusted ecosystem of networks, software, and partners.
Packet helps customers take advantage of Equinix’s unmatched geographic reach in 55+ global markets, 340k+ interconnections between over 1800+ networks, and a neutral approach with automation that creates a trusted, friction-free experience. As part of Equinix, Packet’s mission is to protect, connect, and power the digital world with physical infrastructure that moves at software speed.
One of the reasons I’m so enthusiastic about Packet is that they’re just as passionate about open source and cloud as I am. And now I get to dive into edge and container technologies!
Like, not for Red Hat or the new company, but I organized my wall calendar with upcoming events and worked on a CFP for a virtual event and setting up IRC on my personal laptop and basically nested in my home office.
We’ve already established I’m not very good at this vacation thing anymore.
Alternative Title: So Long Farewell Auf Wiedersehen Goodbye
Just in case you don’t know the reference because you haven’t seen The Sound of Music or don’t remember the iconic scene where the von Trapp kids sing their way out of a party in joy or out of a scary situation in stress, here’s the happier bit:
Also, if you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend the whole thing – simply brilliant. I’m normally a sci fi person myself, but it’s just SO iconic and there are just SO MANY beautiful scenes and songs.
In the meantime, day zero of Red Hat Summit 2020 Virtual Experience starts today with OpenShift Commons and it just occurred to me LAST NIGHT that this means I’m expected to help navigate the chat rooms from 1500 local to #WellPastMyBedTime for the next three days.
