We are excited to announce this month’s Linkerd Hero: Steve Reardon, a two-time winner! Congrats, Steve!

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, Steve!

This month’s hero is Steve Reardon. This is Steve’s second nomination! The first time was in June 2021, when he was nominated along with Steve Gray for their awesome CNCF blog post on Entain’s Linkerd journey.

This time, Steve is nominated for helping his peers on Slack time and again. And because helping community members is one of the most valuable contributions, Steve was nominated again! Thank you, Steve, for taking the time to carefully answer user’s questions on Slack, and helping them on their journey!
