Kathy fills her desk with hardware, especially compute nodes that can be flashed with EVE-OS and microcontroller boards that can be programmed as IoT devices. At ZEDEDA, she drives open source and industry collaboration for win-win benefits. Prior to ZEDEDA, she held senior roles at Mozilla, Arduino, Qualcomm, a few startups, and more. She also volunteers to teach students in STEM. She received her bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, and her master's in EE from Stanford University. When not at a computer, she can usually be found exploring the great outdoors of northern California.
Roman is a well known and acknowledged expert and visionary in Open Source strategy and execution. When co-founding ZEDEDA, he put open source technology at the core of a new industrial computing paradigm -- securing edge compute hardware as if it were part of your cloud-native ecosystem. In addition to making contributions to open source projects across a wide spectrum of technology, including active contributions to Alpine Linux and Project EVE, Roman is on the board of directors of LF Edge, and is VP Legal at the Apache Software Foundation.
