About the Presenters

Nigel Kersten
Nigel is Field CTO at Puppet, responsible for bringing product knowledge and a senior technical operations perspective to Puppet field teams and customers, working on services strategy, and representing the customer back into the product organization. He also works with many of Puppet’s largest customers on the cultural and organizational changes necessary for large scale DevOps implementations. Nigel has served in a range of executive roles at Puppet across product and engineering over the last 9 years, and came to Puppet from the Google SRE organization, where he was responsible for one of the largest Puppet deployments in the world.

He spends his day optimising and maintaining CI/CD pipelines and making the codebase easier to work with for developers. He enjoys evangelising on Agile and deployment-related affairs in software engineering, and thinks the world would be a better place if more developers understood DevOps and made it a culture instead of a role.
