Aeva Marie van der Veen

Microsoft
Technical Program Manager, Azure Confidential Compute
Aeva is a veteran open source developer and community leader with 20 years\' experience in the tech sector. They launched OpenStack\'s Bare Metal program in 2012, enabling performance-sensitive cloud native workloads to run securely without a hypervisor. After serving on the OpenStack Technical Committee, they ran the engineering arm of a cloud hosting company for two years before taking a sabbatical.

Drawing on a lifetime of meditation practice and its intersection with their
gender identity, Aeva was recently published in \"Transcending\", a first-of-its-kind anthology of trans/buddhist writers. They have begun speaking at tech conferences about gender bias in the industry, the risks of biased ML/AI, and teaching techniques for marginalized and activist communities to self-host necessary communications infrastructure.

Today, they work at Microsoft as a Technical Program Manager for Azure Confidential Computing. They also sit on the Kubernetes Code of Conduct Committee, and hold a board seat on a Seattle-area non-profit which advocates and educates for a culture based on consent.
