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

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, Ujjwal!

This month’s hero is Ujjwal Goyal. An enthusiastic Linkerd contributor, Ujjwal raised issues and contributed code to the website repository and Linkerd’s multicluster capabilities. Ujjwal also helps spread the Linkerd message and provides awesome tweet-length summaries of different Linkerd events!

Thank you, Ujjwal, for lots of smaller contributions on a variety of fronts!
