The Secure Software Supply Chain

Your rating:

After decades of gluing together software from a random set of libraries and frameworks, industry wide attacks on the software supply chain have proven this approach is unsustainable, and it's time to shift our thinking on how we write and ship software. In this session we will explore the various tools used to secure the software supply chain, and through a collection of live demos, learn how to put them to use in the real world.


As a  curious and motivated self-learner, I gained an interest in computing at a young age, and started my IT career by opening a small consulting shop 20 years ago. From those beginnings my career progressed quickly, eventually passing through the halls of Google, Puppet Labs, New Relic and CoreOS. I am a system administrator by trade, a programmer by necessity, but a problem-solver at heart. With a passion for helping others, many successful speaking and teaching engagements under my belt, and a proven track record of getting things done and enabling others, I hope to solve the many problems facing IT culture by equipping people with the mental and computational software they need to succeed in the competitive world of technology.
