My name is Michael Hausenblas and I work in the AWS open source observability service team as the Product Manager for AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry (ADOT). Further, I serve as a Cloud Native Ambassador at CNCF.

For AWS-related inquires please use hausenbl@amazon.com and mh9@aws-cloud.dev for everything else. Also, I'm usually hanging out on CNCF Slack and my Twitter DMs are open (IOW you don't need to follow me to message me there).


Some of the books I authored and co-authored are:
2023.Cloud Observability in Action is a hands-on guide on applying observability in the context of cloud native environments (currently some chapters in MEAP available).
2022.Learning Modern Linux teaches modern Linux tooling and techniques.
2021.Hacking Kubernetes shows security defaults in action and how you can defend against attackers.
2019.Programming Kubernetes teaches you how to use and extend Kubernetes programmatically in Go. We cover low-level Kubernetes API access using the client-go package, custom controllers & resources, and custom API servers.
2018.Kubernetes Security covers securing clusters, secure image builds and running containers, authn & authz, secrets, and more.
2018.Kubernetes Cookbook is a collection of recipies for developers and admins that my buddy Sébastien Goasguen and I put together.
2016. Serverless Ops—A Beginners Guide For Serverless Operations covers the serverless ecosystem and how to approach the serverless paradigm from an ops perspective.

Some of my active projects:

  • Contributing to open source software in the observability space, upstream.
  • Working with partners and community on open observability specifications.
  • Sharing updates via the observability newsletter.
  • Serving on Programme Commitees such as KubeCon + CloudNativeCon.

A list of all advocacy sites I've ever done is also available.
