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

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, Aleksandr!

This month’s hero is Aleksandr Tarasov. Aleksandr is Director of Engineering at ANNA Money and recently wrote three great Linkerd blog posts. In his first blog, he shares his team’s decision-making process when selecting Linkerd as their service mesh. His next blog covers three ways to use Linkerd with Kubernetes jobs. And his latest blog is a practical guide to Linkerd authorization policies. These are all great reads, keep them coming Aleksandr! Sharing your experience with the community is one of the most valuable ways to contribute to Linkerd! Thank you, Aleksandr, for sharing your journey so others can learn from it!
