Bryan Cantrill is the CTO at Joyent, where he oversees worldwide development of the SmartOS and SmartDataCenter platforms and the Node.js platform. Prior to joining Joyent, Bryan served as a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he spent over a decade working on system software, from the guts of the kernel to client code on the browser. In particular, he codesigned and implemented DTrace, a facility for dynamic instrumentation of production systems that won the Wall Street Journal’s Technology Innovation Award in 2006 and the USENIX Software Tools User Group Award in 2008. Bryan also cofounded the Fishworks group at Sun, where he designed and implemented the DTrace-based analytics facility for the Sun Storage 7000 series of appliances. Bryan received an ScB magna cum laude with honors in computer science from Brown University.
Bridget Kromhout is a Principal Program Manager at Microsoft Azure, focusing on the open source cloud native ecosystem. Her CS degree emphasis was in theory, but she now deals with the concrete (if ‘cloud’ can be considered tangible). After years on call for production (from enterprise to research to startups) and a couple of customer-facing adventures, she now herds cats and wrangles docs on the product side of engineering. In the wider tech community, she has done much conference speaking and organizing, and advises the global devopsdays organization after leading it for over five years. Living in Minneapolis, she enjoys snowshoeing in the winter and bicycling in the summer (with winter cycling as a stretch goal).
