About Me

My name is Steve Watt. I work on Emerging Technologies for Red Hat where I am also the Chief Architect for Big Data. Previously I was the Hadoop Chief Technologist at HP and worked as a Researcher and Software Architect in Emerging Technologies for IBM Software Strategy  in Austin, Texas.

I am active contributor to the Apache Software Foundation and a variety of other Open Source Projects. Presently, I am spending most of my time working on emerging technologies related to the OpenShift PaaS and the Kubernetes Container Orchestration platform. I am active in the Austin technology community and do my best to stay vested in and connected to the South African technology community as well. This blog is my own and the content therein does not necessarily reflect the position of my employer.
