Announcing July’s Linkerd Hero

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

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, Mikael!

This month’s hero is Mikael Fridh. Mikael reported an incompatibility between Linkerd’s CNI plugin and newer versions of EKS’s VPC CNI plugin. He demonstrated great domain insight by quickly providing a succinct fix, that we immediately incorporated into the 2.12 and 2.13 branches of Linkerd. Thank you, Mikael, for helping rapidly fixing issues, improving everyone’s Linkerd experience!

Maybe you’ve read a blog post or watched a conference talk that helped spur your decision-making process or advance your Linkerd implementation. Or perhaps someone contributed an awesome Linkerd feature or bugfix that has made your life a lot easier.
