A 28-year-old beer drinker. A sparkly devops princess. A philosophy. A quest for a beer-ops-work-life-bourbon-happiness-dev-beer balance. Loving the work being complained about and the process of complaining. Brewing beer and making a perfectly reasonable amount of hot sauce. Post-devops. A pink-haired thought leader. Available for parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs, and bar crawls.
Bridget Kromhout is an operations engineer at DramaFever, the largest streaming video site for international content. She’s been paying the bills with Unix sysadmin work since the last time ‘flannel shirt over babydoll dress’ was a trendy look. Her CS degree emphasis was in theory, but she now deals with the concrete (if ‘cloud’ can be considered tangible). She likes finicky wide-column data stores, stats-driven monitoring, formal grammars, bicycle-powered camping, and butchering pumpkins for home canning. In her spare time she helps organize her local AWS meetup and devopsdays Minneapolis.
