I am Ahmet Alp Balkan, a software engineer living in Seattle. I work for Microsoft Azure Linux Team and I hack on open source as my full time job.

I recently ported Docker to Windows, have been a top contributor of Docker project for a quarter, wrote open source projects Azure SDK for Go, Docker.DotNet, go-linq, ASP.NET Docker Image, ORMan, AzureFS and a whole bunch of others you can find on GitHub. I also wrote apps/services like Dailybbble and Honeycomb.

Fun facts: all Microsoft employees worldwide are wearing the badges I designed for fun. I am a specialty coffee enthusiast and trying to run a half marathon nowadays.
