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.
