About

Hello!

My name is Matt Layher, and I am a Software Engineer at Fastly, working remotely from Kalamazoo, MI. My primary interests include Linux, computer networking, distributed systems, open source software, and the Go programming language.

Open source software is my true passion, and I have authored and published a number of projects on GitHub which have seen wide adoption. In addition, I am regularly involved with the following open source projects:

I enjoy authoring blog posts and giving presentations about technical content at both meetups and conferences, including GopherCon and KubeCon/Cloud Native Con. I see these opportunities as a great challenge and as a force multiplier: by sharing my knowledge with others, we are able to achieve more together than I ever could on my own.

Some of my non-technology hobbies include craft beer, bourbon, exercise, food, and music. It’s always nice to take a break from computers and enjoy some time away with friends and family!
