Julian Friedman ("julz") is the project lead for cloud foundry's container runtime and application autoscaler projects. As well as being the first Cloud Foundry Dojo participant he has a long history of open source contribution, tech leadership and product management. Before working on Cloud Foundry Julian worked on Watson performance and many cloud projects including the very earliest iterations of IBM Cloud (before most people had heard the word cloud!). He is a frequent speaker at conferences and meet ups. Julian holds a doctorate in Large Scale Complex IT Systems with a focus on object orientation, data parallelism and Map/Reduce, the largest result of which has been a lingering and largely unwarranted hatred of Map/Reduce.
