Andrew Clay Shafer was devopsing before devops was a word.
He is often referenced as a foundational voice in the devops movement with a lot of experience and perspective contributing to open source, operating services and building communities.
As a co-founder of Puppet Labs, he had the privilege to watch the internal workings of many organizations who built the big web. Working on OpenStack and Cloud Foundry, he gained a greater appreciation for the challenges of enterprise IT.
He’s a life long learner who hopes he can help others learn too.
