Farewell to Bryan Cantrill
By ahl on Aug 12, 2010
Bryan Cantrill, VP of Engineering at Joyent, earning $15.
I've been expecting this automated mail for a while now, but it was disheartening nonetheless:
List: dtrace-discuss Member: firstname.lastname@example.org Action: Subscription disabled. Reason: Excessive or fatal bounces.
Bryan is a terrific engineer, and I count myself lucky to have worked with him for the past nine years first on DTrace and then on Fishworks. He taught me many things, but perhaps most important was his holistic view of engineering that encompasses all aspects of making a product successful including docs, pricing, talks, papers, and, of course, excellent code. Now Bryan is off to cut through the layers software that make up the cloud. Far from leaving the DTrace community, he's going to take DTrace to new places and I look forward to seeing the fruits of his labor as he sinks his teeth into a new onion of abstractions.
