Matthew Titmus is a seasoned veteran of the software development industry. Since teaching himself to build virtual worlds in LPC, he's earned a surprisingly-relevant degree in molecular biology, written tools to analyze terabyte-sized datasets at a high energy physics laboratory, developed an early web development framework from scratch, wielded distributed computing techniques to analyze cancer genomes, and pioneered machine learning techniques for linked data.
He was an early adopter and advocate of both cloud-native technologies in general and the Go language in particular. For the past four years he has specialized in helping companies migrate monolithic applications into a containerized, cloud-native world, allowing them to transform the way their services are developed, deployed, and managed. He is passionate about what it takes to make a system production quality, and has spent a lot of time thinking about and implementing strategies for observing and orchestrating distributed systems.
Matthew lives on Long Island with the world's most patient woman, to whom he is lucky to be married, and the world's most adorable boy, by whom he is lucky to be called “dad”.
