Karthik Prabhakar, Tigera - After years of experience with large cloud infrastructure deployments involving Kubernetes or OpenStack, Karthik discovered the power of Project Calico, combining a scalable, simple IP routed network fabric with distributed intent-based policy enforcement designed for cloud-native scale. He is now focused on building awareness of how to build and operate network and policy infrastructure at scale for cloud-native workloads.

His career in computing spans more than thirty years and runs the gamut from bringup on bare metal up through mobile applications, with a common thread of communications and security throughout. Recently he’s been working on tools to help developers take advantage of microservice patterns to be more effective.
