Alex Nobert will be here for a presentation on Flynn.

Flynn ( is an open source Platform as a Service, a PaaS, that gives you everything and doesn't require engineering or tooling to glue components together.

Alex will demonstrate exactly how to (and how easy it is to) install, set up and deploy apps to Flynn, and talk about what else is under the hood. Alex describes Flynn as, "so easy to use that if you can git push, you can deploy containers on a highly available, scalable and load-balanced infrastructure with a managed highly available database appliance.

Alex Nobert is Director of Customer Success at Flynn and is an ops survivor. He spends his days helping folks get running on Flynn. At night, he sits on the couch and watches X-Files with his dogs. In a previous incarnation, he built and led ops teams at Shopify, Vox Media, and Minted.
