Jared Smartt

DevOps Software Engineer
Jared is a passionate infrastructure automation engineer at HP, where he helps HP and its customers deliver quality software by transforming culture and embracing a fully-automated continuous-delivery pipeline.  He has used Chef in conjunction with virtualization technologies to close the gap between Dev and Ops, enabling developers to define their infrastructure as code, and use that code to ensure engineers develop on the same environment as production systems.  He is not focused on one tool, rather a set of tools that enable small, quick changes that are tested, made visible, and hands-off deployed.
