Hi, my name is Simme!

I'm a software engineer, open-source aficionado and engineering manager from Sweden. I've spent most of my career building performant and reliable systems and teams. Every now and then, I also do some public speaking. In 2021, I became a Docker Captain, which I then followed up in 2022 by also becoming a Google Developer Expert in the Cloud and Modern Architecture category.

On this page, you'll find some of the things I write around community building, open-source, leadership, observability, and site-reliability engineering. If you'd like to read my raw notes, they're available here and get updated as I explore new topics.

In my spare time, you'll usually find me either out and about in the forest with the dog, skiing, doing gardening, or playing with my Commodore 64.
