Aubrey Langford is an interdisciplinary nerd who is passionate about applying creative problem solving to technical challenges. After studying history and painting in college, they worked their way up from an entry-level tech support job into the role of a devops engineer. In all their positions, Aubrey has enjoyed opportunities to help others by coaching, writing engaging documentation, drawing comics and diagrams, running workshops, and – sometimes – giving impromptu explanations of Kubernetes via finger puppets.
In addition to infusing humor into all of their work, Aubrey is an evangelist for site reliability engineering (SRE), cloud computing, and the design of resilient, self-healing systems. Aubrey loves working with students from a range of backgrounds and technical knowledge to develop their own vision for a better tomorrow, and help them gain the skills they need to inspire and implement meaningful, forward-thinking improvements in their line of work.
