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 primarily hack on Docker and DevOps tools. I recently ported Docker CLI to Windows, have been a top contributor of Docker project for a quarter. Some of the open source projects I created are:

and a whole bunch of others you can find on my GitHub profile.

I am also the designer of the Microsoft employee badges used everyday by all Microsoft employees worldwide. I am a specialty coffee enthusiast and trying to run a half marathon nowadays.
