VP of Engineering
I have 20+ years experience in software product development including 15+ years managing people, projects and technology. I have worked on multiple products at Salesforce, and previously, Microsoft, from consumer services to enterprise platforms; as a developer as well as a manager. As a developer, I’ve helped build tools to test multiple aspects of high volume/ high availability web services. As a manager, I’ve helped define vision and strategy for products; built local and remote teams from scratch, managed large (~50 person) distributed teams and owned releases from planning through delivery. I’ve worked with traditional (waterfall) delivery models as well as agile development/ delivery using scrum. I have a strong record of shipping products on time with high quality.
At present, my primary focus is Continuous Deployment at Salesforce, for deployments and release orchestration to all substrates including public cloud providers and our first party data centers. In this capacity, I manage the development and operations of the deployment platform (built around Spinnaker) and the delivery services that support these deployments (e.g. around delivery to Docker registries and storage buckets).
Technology Areas: Cloud Platform Infrastructure, Continuous Integration/ Continuous Delivery, Testing In Production, Application Virtualization/ Containerization, High Scale/Availability Web Services, Authentication Protocols & Systems, Mobile Device/ Application Management and Data Leakage Protection.

Kohsuke is the creator of Jenkins. He is a well-respected developer and popular speaker at industry and Jenkins community events. He is often asked to speak about his experience and approach in creating Jenkins; a continuous delivery platform that has become a widely adopted and successful community-driven open source project. The principles behind the Jenkins community – extensibility, inclusiveness, low barriers to participation – have been the keys to its success. Kawaguchi’s sensibilities in creating Jenkins and his deep understanding of how to translate its capabilities into usable software have also had a major impact on CloudBees’ strategy as a company. Before joining CloudBees, Kawaguchi was with Sun Microsystems and Oracle, where he worked on a variety of projects and initiated the open source work that led to Jenkins.

Tracy is CEO at DeployHub, a CDF Board Member and Microservice Evangelist
Tracy is a dynamic and entertaining speaker. She is expert in software development practices and can present on a wide variety of topics in this area. In recent years, she has focused her attention on cloud native development, containers and Kubernetes. She understands the service based architecture disruption in software practices and how companies need to pivot to support a microservice based continuous delivery practice – what she likes to call K8s Pipelines. Tracy has been a visionary in this area her entire career. In 1995, she co-founded OpenMake Software, a private software company that specializes in the automation of cross-platform, and accelerated software builds (compile/link standards). Her innovation in this area was recognized by IBM, leading her to a board position on the newly formed Eclipse Foundation where she served for 5 years. In 2014, Tracy and her team recognized the shift in pipeline management that the new container-based architecture would require. This led to the formation of DeployHub, a new product and company focused on bringing microservice configuration mapping, sharing, and deployment to high performing development teams. Ortelius was launched as an open source solution for microservice mapping in early 2019 based on a core of the DeployHub code base.
