Hey folks, ๐Ÿ‘‹

I am Mitchell Hashimoto, founder and CTO of HashiCorp. HashiCorp is a remote-first, open source-based company that solves development, operations, and security challenges for cloud and infrastructure automation. At the time of writing, HashiCorp has over 400 employees and is valued at nearly $2 billion.

Iโ€™m the creator of Vagrant, Packer, Serf, Consul, Terraform, Vault, and Nomad. All of these projects are open source (MPL2). Fun fact is I started Vagrant in a dorm room, it has come a long way!

I am happy to answer almost any questions, but here are some topics to help:

  • Cloud infrastructure
  • Security
  • Static infrastructure vs dynamic infrastructure
  • Development environments, IDEs, etc.
  • Docker, Kubernetes, etc.
  • Startups and building a business around open source
  • Remote company, culture, hiring, etc.
  • Open Source!

Looking forward to answering your questions! I will answer them live on 30th Jan, 2 PM ET onwards.
