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?
As a SIG within the CNCF, it's our main responsibility to bring projects together, but also to get ideas how they could help end-users. To achieve this, I want to provide more oversight about projects in the SIG's area. Personally, I also like the idea of demonstrating end-users, how multiple projects (especially in the infrastructure deployment, packaging, distribution and deployment scope) could interact and create value for them. Furthermore, I love to see new projects growing and will try to build bridges between projects and - if they want - could also help them building end-user friendly solutions.
As a Tech Lead, I think I need to have a knowledge-based opinion. Therefore, it might be the case that someone asks for advisory/recommendation, and I'll provide this in the best way possible. As I stated in my nomination, I like experimenting and learning. I'm not afraid of trying things out, and providing the configurations and results to the community. On the other hand there might be topics which are not in my area of expertise. In such cases I will connect the right people, find a solution together and provide the results to the community.

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!
