Beyond Ad-hoc Automation: To Structured Platforms



Bridget Kromhout provides advice on navigating DevOps tooling and platforms, how to work with the right level of abstraction with DevOps tooling, and how different DevOps pieces fit together into a cohesive solution. Kromhout also shares stories of successful and not so successful solutions.


Bridget Kromhout is a Principal Technologist for Cloud Foundry at Pivotal. Her CS degree emphasis was in theory, but she now deals with the concrete (if ‘cloud’ can be considered tangible). A frequent speaker at tech conferences, she helps organize the AWS and DevOps meetups at home in Minneapolis, serves on the program committee for Velocity, and acts as a global core organizer for DevOpsDays.
