Our local team
Jason is a 20+ year technology veteran, primarily in the application-development-side in IT. His consulting and diverse industry resume helps Jason to apply patterns and solutions in unconventional ways. Though spending many of his years in the Microsoft ecosystem, he is not dogmatic in his approach – it’s all about the right solution for the problem. He is currently the Director of Software Development at CPI Card Group in Nashville.
Don Bauer started his career fourteen years ago in a metrics analyst and systems engineering role with Charter Communications. Since then, he has held roles in development, infrastructure, architecture and operations for both enterprise corporations and startups. He immediately recognized a common thread in each role that allowed him to focus on enabling teams and companies to succeed through standardization, simplification, and automation. Don believes companies and teams succeed through transparency and experimentation without the fear of failure. In his current role, Don operates with one simple principle: to automate himself out of a job. Currently, Don is the Director of DevOps Engineering at IHS Markit. He primarily focuses on automating the integration and delivery of software and services, and he supports innovation using technologies like Docker and Kubernetes. Don is also a Docker captain and community leader and organizes several local meetups.
Kevin Crawley is a Nashville area native who has worked at multiple late-stage or acquired startups locally and internationally. He currently serves as VP of Engineering at Single Music; a Nashville-based startup focused on digital music tools for artists and labels. He’s spoken on DevOps topics worldwide, from San Francisco and New York to Tokyo, Sydney, and London. He’s also organized multiple local Nashville area user groups over the past decade and has organized other events such as Hackathons.
Geoff Craig is a Solutions Architect for Breakfree Solutions and an excited first time organizer for DevOps Days Nashville. In his free time you can usually find him behind a book, in a strange new city, or behind a guitar playing very badly. His favorite opening liner is, ‘I like long walks on the beach… and bourbon.’
Chris Gundersen, known as Gunny by friends and law enforcement, is the Head of Technology at Velocity Risk Underwriters based in Green Hills. As a pragmatic polyglot he has been fortunate to have been a part of many fantastic teams that have built loads of awesome things in the last 20+ years. That last part makes him feel old. His favorite piece of recorded music is either Op. 92 from Beethoven’s 7th symphony or Jump Around by House of Pain.
