Adventures in early-adoption of open-source code
Sam brings 10+ years’ experience as a Linux SysAdmin, and was doing DevOps before he even knew DevOps was a thing. He has worked at a number of startups, most recently Amee where he helped to open up a substantial chunk of environmental data.
James has been a software developer for 15 years, first obtaining a PhD from the University of Surrey creating new 3d graphics algorithms, then working in a variety of industries including biometrics, flight simulation and visual effects.
