Hi, I’m Laura. I believe that done is better than perfect, that iteration, simplicity, and customer feedback are keys to success, and that community-driven efforts lead to powerful change. When I’m not working (Senior Site Reliability Engineer at Klaviyo) or organizing the PyLadies Boston and Boston Devops meetups, I enjoy a nice cup of tea and board games with friends.
Ed is a 20+ year veteran of the software industry who has worked in numerous roles from tech support to QA and even management (!). He is passionate about software quality and software engineering efficiency and an unabashed kanban fanboy. He is also a philosopher, lover of fine food and cocktails, occasional DJ and master of the rhetorically awkward question. Ed is currently employed at Cure Forward as a “DevOps Engineer” where he is developing infrastructure to match cancer patients with clinical trials and helping developers understand the operational implications of the code they write.
James is a site reliability engineer at Quantopian, a crowd-sourced quantitative investment firm located in Boston, MA. His focus is developing the cloud architecture that supports the Quantopian community’s Python trading algorithms. Prior to joining Quantopian, he worked as a site reliability engineer at Harvard, a developer evangelist at AppNeta, and a release engineer at Romney for President 2012.
In his spare time James is a conference organizer for DevOpsDays Boston, now in its fourth year. He is also a meetup and conference speaker on topics including performance optimization, site reliability engineering, and devops tools. He is also quite committed to ‘soft skills’ education focusing on organizational culture and human behavior, particularly when he can incorporate lessons learned from his background in psychology and political science.
