I am Ahmet Alp Balkan, a software engineer living in Seattle, WA. I work at Google on Kubernetes.

Prior to Google, I worked on Linux and DevOps tools for Microsoft Azure, where I did some open source projects like porting Docker CLI to Windows, creating the first official Docker image for ASP.NET core, Azure SDK for Go and C# SDK for Docker. and designing the Microsoft employee badges.

I have been coding in Go full time for the past three years. I use my spare time to hack on open source projects that you can find on my GitHub profile.
