Hacking the kernel: one man's tale

Interviews

Mel Gorman works with code. Nothing unusual in that, an overwhelming number of the people I interact with in the FOSS arena do just that. But Gorman is a little more involved than most: he is a kernel developer and hence works at a more basic level than many others.

Gorman is based in Ireland from where he works remotely for SUSE, the Linux company based in Nuremberg, Germany. He is involved both in work for the company and with the upstream kernel community.

In his early 30s, Gorman is not a superstar in the kernel ranks; he is one of the rank and file who contributes to a project that keeps a fair amount of the big iron in the world running. But these are the worker bees of the FOSS community, the silent majority who keep the codebase churning over.
