Website | @bcantrill

Bryan Cantrill is CTO at Joyent. Previously a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, Bryan has spent over a decade working on system software, from the guts of the kernel to client-code on the browser and much in between. Bryan led the team that designed and implemented DTrace, a facility for dynamic instrumentation of production systems that won the Wall Street Journal’s top Technology Innovation Award in 2006 and the USENIX Software Tools User Group Award in 2008. Bryan co-founded the Fishworks group at Sun, where he designed and implemented the DTrace-based analytics facility found in the Sun Storage 7000 series of appliances — a facility that InfoWorld described as “stunning” in a February 2009 review. In 2005, Bryan was named by MIT’s Technology Review as one of the top 35 technologists under the age of 35, and by InfoWorld as one of their Innovators of the Year. Bryan received the ScB magna cum laude with honors in computer science from Brown University.
