Hello! I'm Thomas Vitale, I live in Denmark, and I'm a Software Engineer focused on building cloud native, resilient, and secure applications and platforms. I work at Systematic and I'm the author of Cloud Native Spring in Action, a CNCF Ambassador, Oracle ACE Pro, and Testcontainers Community Champion.

Some of my main interests and focus areas are Java, Spring Boot, Kubernetes, Generative AI, 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 in the Java and cloud native space (Spring Security, Spring Cloud, Spring AI, LangChain4j, Carvel, Buildpacks, OWASP CycloneDX), and sharing knowledge with the community. My speaking gigs include those for Spring I/O, SpringOne, Devoxx, GOTO, Jfokus, KCD, and KubeCon+CloudNativeCon.

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, Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Application Development, and Pivotal Certified Spring Professional.

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