#223: Maybe you’ve been in the tech space for years and you’re ready to get into open source. On the other hand, you may be fresh out of school and you’re trying to build your CV. What project should you start to work on? The answer is easier than you think.
In this episode, we speak with Dotan Horovits, Principal Developer Advocate at Logz.io, on topics ranging from running an in-person event to the proper way to engage in open source communities.
Horovits lives at the intersection of technology, product and innovation. With over 20 years in the hi-tech industry as a software developer, a solutions architect and a product manager, he brings a wealth of knowledge in cloud and cloud-native solutions, DevOps practices and more.
Horovits is an international speaker and thought leader, as well as an Ambassador of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Horovits is an avid advocate of open source and communities, an organizer of the CNCF Tel-Aviv meetup group and of Kubernetes Community Days and DevOpsDays local events, a podcaster at OpenObservability Talks, and a blogger, among others.
Currently working as the principal developer advocate at Logz.io, Horovits evangelizes on Observability in IT systems using popular open source projects such as Prometheus, OpenSearch, Jaeger and OpenTelemetry.
