Sweet Tea Dorminy
I (Sweet Tea) have worked on kernel storage since graduating from MIT in 2013. I've been a fan of open source, particularly storage technology, since I started using Gentoo in '05, and was fortunate to get a job out of college working on Linux kernel storage. I began at a startup called Permabit working on a then-proprietary software-defined storage device providing dedupe and compression, which was acquired by Red Hat in 2017. dm-vdo has now been open sourced and is working on going upstream soon. In 2022, I joined the btrfs team at Meta, and have been working on adding filesystem encryption to btrfs and other btrfs things since.
