Justin Luk is currently a product manager at Facebook. He made his name as a senior program manager at Microsoft Azure, managing the Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) as well as Azure Container Instances and Azure Cloud Shell.
He studied computer science at the Georgia Institute of Technology and has worked in product management at a number of high-level, prestigious companies including Coca-Cola and McKinsey.
His time at Microsoft Azure instilled in him a passion for software containers, the cloud, and great user experiences. His current role at Facebook is the perfect outlet for his skills and experience.
While Facebook is a more widely-known brand name, Justin is arguably better known for his work at Microsoft Azure.
During his time as program manager for Azure Kubernetes Services, the team grew fivefold, and he was responsible for defining and executing the product roadmap that led to AKS leadership in Gartner Magic Quadrant.
He was the lead program manager for Azure Cloud Shell and led it from ideation to delivery, iterating a global service running on Kubernetes with both Linux & Windows containers. He also led the integration of Azure Container Instances and Azure Cloud Shell with Azure PowerShell, Microsoft Docs, VS Code, and Terraform.
Justin writes about his experiences and ideas on his Medium site: https://medium.com/@justinluk.
We particularly enjoyed his essay, "If I could relearn product management". But his thoughts on "Forks, Spoons, and Knives" is also a witty exploration of business inefficiencies, comparing the misaligned state of his cutlery drawer to the consumer tech scene.
He also posts regularly on Twitter (follow him at @whoisjluk).
