Become a sponsor to Brenden Matthews

I maintain a number of open source projects including Conky, a system monitor for X. I maintain a variety of libraries and small applications. I'm an Apache Software Foundation member, and have been contributing to open source projects for more than 20 years.

I was an early contributor to the container ecosystem, specifically doing a lot of work with Docker, Mesos and and its schedulers (Chronos, Marathon), Kubernetes, and more. Some of the other projects I've contributed to or worked extensively with include: Kafka, Presto, Terraform tooling, Kubernetes tooling, Rust language and Elixir language projects.

Sometimes I stream my work on Twitch.


With 25 sponsors I'd be living the dream.
