After working for several years as a Backend Developer (primarily using Ruby on Rails), I had a career pivot to infrastructure engineering. These days I build and operate large scale, distributed infrastructure services. My primary focus has been building control and data plane for North-South and East-West routing infrastructure.
I'm a member of Kubernetes organization and had been an active ingress-nginx contributor for few years. My main contribution to Kubernetes has been through ingress-nginx where I changed it so that it could handle Kubernetes endpoints changes dynamically without reloading NGINX worker processes among many other improvements. Prior to that, ingress-nginx was impossible to use in Kubernetes clusters where endpoints change constantly and frequently.
