Michael started his career in academia as a PhD academic researcher.
These days, Michael is a Developer Advocate at AWS. He is part of the container service team, focusing on container security. Michael shares his experience around cloud native infrastructure and apps through demos, blog posts, books, and public speaking engagements as well as contributes to open source software.
“I found that industry overall is way less stressful than academic research. If it’s weekend or if I’m on PTO or whatever, I’m offline.“
“I’m a developer advocate. Basically, its kind of like a guinea pig. We’re the first ones who get to play around with software and give feedback. It’s like, the UX here is great or here the UX sucks. So we are guinea pigs representing for the customer.”
“I just love to be on site with customers discussing things, trying things. The greatest part is being with actual users of the software that you’re producing and going over that in 400 level details.”
