Dave Lester

I'm an open source technologist living in San Francisco, currently working at US Bank as an Open Source Solutions Architect / Principal Engineer.

The heart of my professional work has been leading open source initiatives and growing developer communities.

Previously, I led open source programs at Apple, focused on machine learning and cloud infrastructure. I've also worked for Twitter and Mozilla in open source developer relations roles, and received a masters degree from the UC Berkeley School for Information.

I'm always interested in discussing open source community best practices, career advice, and connecting with new communities. If I can be of help, drop me an email.
