Re: Self-nomination as a Tech-Lead of the SIG App-Delivery (Thomas Schuetz)

Thomas,

I had a few questions I was hoping you could help with... to further dig into what you'd like to do...

SIG App Delivery is scoped with developing, distributing, deploying, managing and operating applications. It's more than the delivery portion we often think about. How do you see yourself being able to provide technical leadership in areas such as developing cloud native applications?

You noted...
I want to get Tech-Lead to help projects evolve, get more oversight about projects, provide ideas for new topic areas and give technical advisories for app-delivery related topics.

I'm curious what you mean when you say "get more oversight about projects". Can you explain further? The context is that I'm a maintainer of a couple projects that fall under SIG App Delivery and I'm curious about the impact.

Could you provide some examples of technical advisories as you're suggesting them? I'm curious what you're thinking and how it maps to the work being done in the space.

Thanks,
Matt

Hello!

I’m very excited to nominate myself as Tech-Lead for the CNCF SIG App-Delivery.
 
I am working as a Senior Cloud Engineer at Dynatrace and have a strong technical interest in container technologies and cloud native application delivery. In the last two decades, I worked in various systems administration and operations roles, but also worked as an operations lead before I switched back to more hands-on technical roles and (re-)discovered my enthusiasm for cloud-native and infrastructure automation related topics. I like to learn new things and working with emerging technologies, so I’m currently building lots of prototypes to discover new possibilities to solve delivery related problems.
 
Last year, I joined the SIG App Delivery and drove the progress of the Operator Working Group. This year, I became a co-chair of the WG and like to work with the community on the common goal of creating an operator white paper. I want to get Tech-Lead to help projects evolve, get more oversight about projects, provide ideas for new topic areas and give technical advisories for app-delivery related topics.

Thanks in advance for your consideration!

Best, Thomas
