Ryn Daniels

Ryn Daniels is a senior operations engineer at Etsy who got their start in programming with TI-80 calculators back when Geocities was still cool, and these days has opinions on things like ‘the cloud’ and ‘devops’. Before escaping to the world of operations, they spent a few years doing R&D and systems engineering in the corporate world. They live in Brooklyn with a perfectly reasonable number of cats, and in their spare time can often be found rock-climbing or hand crafting knitted server koozies for the data center. They are co-author of O’Reilly Media’s Effective DevOps.

Bridget Kromhout is a Principal Cloud Advocate at Microsoft. Her CS degree emphasis was in theory, but she now deals with the concrete (if “cloud” can be considered tangible). After 15 years as an operations engineer, she traded being on call for being on a plane. A frequent speaker and program committee member for tech conferences, she leads the devopsdays organization globally and the devops community at home in Minneapolis. She podcasts with Arrested DevOps, blogs at http://bridgetkromhout.com, and is active in a Twitterverse near you.
