Hi! I'm Chris Armstrong.
I love connecting passionate people, shaping products, and building businesses.

I work at Engine Yard and lead the team that builds Deis, an open-source PaaS built on CoreOS and Docker.
In a previous life, I built The Resumator and recruited an engineering team to join me. I had a blast!
Another adventure saw me supporting production infrastructure at Socrata.

Occasionally, I speak about things. Even more occasionally, people listen.
I recently spoke at Ceph Days SF 2015. One time, I also spoke at Alpha Lab about Jurassic Park and scaling web infrastructure.

When I'm not thinking about the open-source community, startups, or cloud infrastructure, I love to:
Fly as a private pilot. Sip soothing tea. Drink delicious beer. Play great board games.
