JJ Asghar

Developer Advocate, IBM

JJ is a Developer Advocate at IBM, focusing on the IBM Kubernetes Service by ensuring that companies and users have a successful on-boarding to the cloud native ecosystem.

He lives and grew up in Austin, Texas. He enjoys a good strong stout, hoppy IPA, and some team building Artemis, madding Dwarf Fortress, Rimworld, or Factorio.

He’s a member of the Church of Emacs, though jumps into Vim on remote machines. He usually chooses Ubuntu over CentOS, but secretly wants FreeBSD everywhere. He’s always trying to become a better Ruby developer, but experiments with Go, Python, and only when he has to, Node. A father and husband, if he’s not trying to automate his job away, he’s always trying to convince his daughters to “be button makers not button pushers”.
