Michael Meskes

Sr. Director Cloud Products/GM credativ
Michael Meskes has worked in the open-source industry his whole career. After graduation he started and ran credativ, a pure open source company that is now part of NetApp, where Michael is still leading the same group of open source enthusiasts. On top of that he is tasked with improving open source work within NetApp. Coming from the Unix landscape he started working on free and open-source software in 1993 and subsequently joined several free software projects like the Linux kernel, Debian GNU/Linux and PostgreSQL, where he is still active as a developer and committer as much as his real life commitments allow him to.
