Technology Talks & Upcoming Projects

I’ve started a new effort to line up some meetups to talk about what I’ve been working on the last few months. This is some cool stuff everybody, so I hope you’re ready for the deluge! Here are the first dates of many meetups and some conferences I’m lining up to speak at. I’ll be diving into a host of technologies; Terraform, AWS, GCP, Azure, Drone.io (CI in general), continuous delivery, practices, and a whole lot of other systemic things.

In addition to these dates, if you’d like me to swing by and speak, demo, or show some of this technology I’ve got a fairly open schedule and would be happy to schedule more.

But often, to move forward toward my own goals I need to get an updated check of other’s perceptions of what reality is for them. The reason is simple, to achieve my goals and others’ to achieve their goals we all are going to work together on things. It’s a simple thing really, it’s how humanity and society move forward as a whole.
