Casey West is a Principal Technologist for Cloud Foundry at Pivotal. Working in Internet infrastructure, web app security, and design taught him to be a paranoid, UX-oriented, problem solving Internet plumber. He’s spoken at events ranging from OSCON, ApacheCon, and YAPC to user groups and Geek Cruises, and writes occasionally for O’Reilly Radar. Topics of late include tech culture, devops, open source community, software architecture, platforms, and quirky programming tricks. Casey lives in Pittsburgh where he raises three sarcastic children and organizes #CoffeeOps, and his earliest contributions to Perl live to this day on your Mac.
