Hi! My name is John and I'm a Staff Field Engineer @ VMware where I work with customers to help design and implement Kubernetes solutions, in addition to contributing back to upstream open source projects.


I've always been interested in technology and after a 5-year stint as a semi-professional basketball coach in England, I stumbled into a role as an instructor for various DevOps / Continuous Delivery tools. When container technology started gaining interest, I joined Docker to lead the West Region Technical Account Management team. While at Docker, I helped design and implement container strategy and tooling for some of their largest customers and spoke at DockerCon SF in 2018. Eventually, I wanted to be more hands-on with Kubernetes and the upstream open source community. That led me to VMware (via the Heptio acquisition) where I now focus primarily on Kubernetes and associated CNCF projects to help customers make the transition to a cloud native world. Outside of work I love to follow most Boston sports (go Celtics!) and am active in the Seattle tech community. I co-lead DevOps & Linux Meetup groups and volunteer as an industry mentor for ADA Developers Academy. I tweet at @johnharris85 so please come and say hello!
