Ian Lawson

Expert Overview

was a developer from 1990 until 2013 specialising in cutting edge technologies and massive data analysis/searching for multiple Government agencies, I switched to the dark side of vendors because I really disliked vendors and wanted the best of them to crush the rest. Huge FOSS advocate (consumer) for many years and a JAVA techhead, but never having had used Linux (what an odd little OS) I quickly adapted to the technology at Red Hat and set out on my master plan to influence them from within as a customer-secret-agent.

Seriously though, love Red Hat to bits, only company I'll ever work for again, and OpenShift is the technology I was yearning for, and trying to write, for decades so it's the ultimate rush to be involved with trying to help customers over the technology pitfalls I was stuck in for years.
