Daniel Axtens


Daniel is an OpenPOWER performance engineer at IBM OzLabs. He works with containers, continuous integration, and performance optimisation - often all at the same time! He has a particular focus on the challenges of interpreted language behaviour and performance, as well as a growing interest in developing scalable continuous integration systems for the Power architecture.

He has also worked as a Linux kernel developer, where he worked on kernel support for IBM CAPI accelerator cards.

Before joining IBM he studied Engineering at ANU, and worked in web development. He also dabbled in embedded systems.

When not in front of a screen of some description, he enjoys walking around Canberra and spending time with his wife.
