We are excited to announce this month’s Linkerd Hero: Dani Baeyens. Congrats, Dani!

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, Dani Baeyens!

This month’s hero is Dani Baeyens, who contributed changes to fully support RSA signatures on Linkerd’s trust anchors. The trust anchor is the root of authentication in Linkerd, and allowing RSA signatures makes it even easier to integrate Linkerd into an existing workflow. Thanks, Dani, for helping us make Linkerd 2.12 more awesome!
