Tech Evangelist
Boston, USA
Flynn is a technical evangelist at Buoyant, where he works on spreading the good word about Linkerd - the graduated CNCF service mesh that makes the fundamental tools for software security and reliability freely available to every engineer - and about Kubernetes and cloud-native development in general. Flynn is also the original author of the Emissary-ingress API gateway, itself a CNCF project.

Flynn's career in computing spans nearly forty years and runs the gamut from bringup on bare metal to distributed applications, with a common thread of communications and security throughout. He has spoken about Linkerd, Emissary-ingress, and other cloud native technologies at several conferences, including KubeCon/CloudNativeCon and DevOps Days.
