Leonard Vincent Simon Pahlke

Hi there! I'm Leonard Pahlke, a software engineer with a focus on cloud native, open source, sustainable software, ethical software and emerging software tech like eBPF or WebAssembly in the cloud. I like to design and build systems that tend to get big and complex. I serve as Chair for the CNCF TAG Environmental Sustainability and am a CNCF Ambassador. I served as Emeritus Advisor for the v1.28 Kubernetes release and led the Kubernetes release team for v1.26 with around 40 team members. I organize cloud native meetups in Hamburg and globally.

Poem Die Nordsee: Fragen von Heinrich Heine

Am Meer, am wüsten, nächtlichen Meer

Steht ein Jüngling-Mann,

Die Brust voll Wehmut, das Haupt voll Zweifel,

Und mit düstern Lippen fragt er die Wogen [...]

Es murmeln die Wogen ihr ew’ges Gemurmel,

Es wehet der Wind, es fliehen die Wolken,

Es blinken die Sterne, gleichgültig und kalt,

Und ein Narr wartet auf Antwort.
