from DataDog

Ross has a long history in the world of Training, Certification and Career Enhancement. He began in the US Army and quickly began making applications in CPM, then MS-DOS and various Unices.

He is currently a Technical Evangelist on the Community Team for DataDog, the company and product that lets you monitor all your systems, applications and services across the entire devops stack.

Ross recently spent another tour of duty at SUSE Inc. as their Certification Architect, remaking their Certification Program to modern standards, putting 10+ hands-on certifications into the market and inaugurating the first SUSE Enterprise Architects into the world.

Ross currently lives in Central Michigan with his family, enjoys hiking, water and winter sports and actually thinks he is a drummer, though others may disagree occasionally.

The days of being a sysadmin alone are nearly gone, and soon you MUST have developer operations skills to get even the most entry level job managing a rack of servers, of virtualized systems or your own AWS, Azure or Google Cloud environment!

There's a hard way and an easy way to skill-up and become a Devops Engineer. Your presenter did it the hard way and can help you avoid the problems and pitfalls of gaining this critically-needed skillset.

The presenter will define the journey, show why it's a valid and important skill path to follow, make recommendations as to what to read, courses to take for free that will help you and what certifications will virtually guarantee your employability in this fun and challenging field.
