Announcing the December 2023 Linkerd Hero!


December 22, 2023 • 2 min read

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

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, TJ Miller!

This month’s hero is TJ Miller. TJ spearheaded the PR for injecting the Linkerd proxy as a native sidecar container. Linkerd has relied on the sidecar pattern since its humble beginnings, but Kubernetes version 1.29 finally adds first-class support for sidecars to Kubernetes itself. Allowing Linkerd to use this new feature is a definite improvement for many users, and we thank TJ for thoroughly researching this feature and implementing it impeccably. Working with him and bringing this exciting improvement to full fruition was a pleasure!
