About

Hi, I’m L! I do developer relations at Tilt.

I love writing and speaking, and sometimes I dabble on YouTube as well. I’ve published Go course in Portuguese, I’m a Google Developer Expert for Go, and a CNCF ambassador.

I’m deeply involved with open source, more specifically Go and Kubernetes. I got my start in the Kubernetes world by working as an intern developer on SIG-CLI, thanks to Outreachy.

Currently I’m passionate about making multi-container systems easier and more accessible to develop in.

I’m non-binary and use they/them/their pronouns.
