Hello! I'm Thomas Vitale, I live in Denmark, and I'm a Software Engineer and Architect specialized in building cloud native, resilient, and secure enterprise applications. I'm the author of Cloud Native Spring in Action, I'm a CNCF Ambassador, and Oracle ACE Pro.

I design and develop software solutions at Systematic, Denmark, where I've been working on modernizing platforms and applications for the cloud native world, focusing on developer experience and security.

Some of my main interests and focus areas are Java, Spring Boot, Kubernetes, Knative, and cloud native technologies in general. I support continuous delivery practices and believe in a collaboration culture aimed at working together to deliver value to users, customers, and businesses. I like contributing to open source projects like Spring Security and Spring Cloud, and sharing knowledge with the community.

I hold an MSc in Computer Engineering specializing in software from the Polytechnic University of Turin (Italy). I'm a CNCF Certified Kubernetes Application Developer, Pivotal Certified Spring Professional, and Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Application Development. My speaking engagements include those for SpringOne, Spring I/O, KubeCon+CloudNativeCon, Devoxx, GOTO, JBCNConf, DevTalks, and J4K.

When I don't develop software, I love playing the piano and composing music.
