What a difference a year can make; after a couple consecutive years of pandemic-related uncertainties, the world has finally turned the page. And as we kick off 2023, the team at Sylabs couldn’t be prouder of all the progress we made with everything from new offerings to product innovations to exciting new partnerships. In some ways, we still haven’t gotten back to the “normal” level of trade shows, conferences, and user groups that keep us connected to the community, but now it’s just a matter of time. In the meantime, it’s worth revisiting 5 key developments that made 2022 a year of renewal and growth.
1) Appointing a new CTO. In March, Sylabs appointed Adam Hughes as our new CTO. Aside from his twelve years of experience in the five-eyes intelligence community developing offensive and defensive cyber capabilities, and a specialist background in real-time operating systems, carrier-grade telecommunications systems, and large-scale distributed systems, Adam has contributed thousands of lines of code to Singularity. Adam has not only taken the reins on our technology strategy, but he’s still active in development, including making key contributions to Sylab’s X.509 certificate and software bill of materials (SBOM) efforts. Having Adam in the CTO’s seat is a great plus for Sylabs and the Singularity community at large.
