That’s a wrap on Spinnaker Summit 2020! Thank you to all the attendees, sponsors and speakers that joined us virtually this year. All sessions will continue to be accessible as VOD indefinitely at https://www.modev.com/spinnaker-summit. You can also continue to connect with members of the Spinnaker community via our Slack channel #spinnaker-summit-2020 through 2021. Additionally, all session recordings will be uploaded to the Spinnaker Youtube one month from the event date.

Spinnaker Summit brings together a thriving global community of software collaborators. Spinnaker, an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform, has released hundreds of thousands of changes into production at Netflix and many other industry-leading companies like Adobe, Cisco, Grubhub, The Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Salesforce, Sony PlayStation, and Target. At the 2020 Spinnaker Summit, we will take action, building together to solve real problems our enterprises face.

  • My experience has been focused on building startups from the ground up, where I have served as CTO, with 4 successful exits/acquisitions. In my past I’ve enjoyed building software products across multiple domains (e.g., adtech, big data, mobile, social, DevOps tooling) that bring joy to the people who use them. Although my title has mostly been CTO, I am passionate about product development, organizational psychology, and a penchant for gummy bears. I’m a big supporter of OSS communities the impact they can make on the world. I’m a core contributor & part of the steering committee for Spinnaker which is used by some of the world’s largest organizations ( Netflix, Adobe, AirBnb, Adobe, Cisco, Grubhub, The Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Salesforce, Sony PlayStation, and more) to reliably deliver software at scale. In Addition to Spinnaker OSS, I’m ex-member of the Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) for the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF).
