MBA with Entrepreneurship minor, BS Informatics

Hi, I'm Ken Erwin & I work behind the scenes writing the content for the courses & the website, as well as designing new tools for the DevOps community. I've led DevOps initiatives at numerous companies, including implementing CI/CD@Angie's List, OpenStack@Interactive Intelligence, leading the Infra-Automation@Salesforce, and am currently serving as Chief Architect for KAR, primarily working on Kubernetes (both on-prem and cloud).

I have a B.S. in Informatics and an M.B.A from IU Kelley with a specialization in entrepreneurship. In my spare time, I love running (slowly!), random hobbies that seem to change monthly, and spending time with my family too :).
