Eric Smalling

Senior Developer Advocate at Snyk

Eric has over 25 years of professional experience in enterprise software development and architecture and has been practicing DevOps concepts since long before the term was coined. A continuous integration advocate and implementer for nearly a decade, a former Jenkins Ambassador, and a Docker user since the early days back in 2013.

A child of the ’80s and a second-generation software developer–his father was a SNOBOL coder in the 60s–Eric has been coding since his elementary school days bash on 8-bit machines. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, traveling, photography, and, of course, hacking on software.
