If you attended this month’s Linkerd Community meeting, you’ve already heard the news: this month’s Linkerd Hero is Dom DePasquale Congrats, Dom!

What are Linkerd Heroes?

Linkerd Heroes are community members who best represent the spirit of the Linkerd community. Whether it’s helping others, answering questions, sharing their successes (and failures!) with the world at large, or contributing code or docs, Linkerd Heroes are instrumental in making the Linkerd community the amazing place it is today.

Congrats, Dom!

This month’s hero is Dom DePasquale. At ServiceMeschCon Europe, Dom shared how the engineering team at Penn State used Linkerd to schedule 68,000 COVID tests. Because sharing lessons learned (and pitfalls!) with the community is one of the most valuable ways to participate in the open source community, the Linkerd maintainers nominated him. Thank you, Dom, for sharing your experience!
