Andrea Gallego

Andrea Gallego

CTO of BCG Gamma

When you have to say “YES” to everything, what does that really mean?

The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is a global management consulting firm that advises industry leading companies on value creation strategies, innovation, transformation, supply chain management and much more. BCG provides recommendations and analytics that are custom tailored to the needs of each client. To do this BCG is transforming what used to be presentations and manual models into software that is prototyped and distributed to their client to run on their infrastructure – in effect changing the way BCG delivers value.

However the productization process poses unique challenges and opportunities. Their clients have every type of infrastructure and application stack within their IT environments, how can BCG ensure that the custom built analytics applications will operate well at scale in their client’s production environment – especially when it is an environment that they don’t control? The bespoke nature of the BCG business led the team to embark on an engineering led journey to containerization with Docker. Attend this session to learn more about the approach, challenges and how BCG is enabling transformation with Docker Enterprise Edition.

Chloe Condon

Chloe Condon

Developer Evangelist

Former musical theatre actress and Hackbright Academy graduate, Chloe is now a Developer Evangelist at Sentry. Pre-Hackbright, she spent her nights and weekends performing in the Bay Area as a singer/actress and worked in tech by day. To support her theatre career, she started to learn to code on her own through online resources. Perhaps the only engineer you’ll meet who has been in “Hairspray”, “Xanadu”, and “Jerry Springer: the Opera”- she is passionate about bringing people with non-traditional backgrounds into the world of tech. If you’re trying to place her face, yes- she’s the young woman giving the awkward thumbs up in the “What It’s Like to be a Woman at a Tech Conference” article (which she also wrote). Chloe is also the organizer of TechLadyPicnic (a SF women in tech meet-up group), as well as the hostess/organizer of Sentry Scouts (a camp themed monthly tech meet-up… yes there are patches for each meet-up). In February of 2018 she was named one of the “200+ Thought Leaders in Crypto and Blockchain” and still knows absolutely nothing about Blockchain… however, a quick Google search of her will provide you with getting started with Docker videos, observability articles, theatre reviews, tech blogs, and videos of her singing- enjoy!

Christian Kniep

Christian Kniep

Technical Account Manager

With a 10y journey rooted in the HPC parts of the german automotive industry, Christian started to support CAE applications and VR installations.
When told at a conference that HPC can not learn anything from the emerging Cloud and BigData companies, he became curious and was leading the containerization effort of the cloud-stack at Playstation Now.
Christian joined Docker Inc in 2017 to help push the adoption forward and be part of the innovation instead of an external bystander.
During the day he helps Docker customers in the EMEA region to fully utilize the power of containers; at night he likes to explore new emerging trends by containerizing them first and seek application in the nebulous world of DevOps. Christian tweets @CQnib

Christopher Liljenstolpe

Christopher Liljenstolpe

CTO & Co-founder
Christopher is the CTO and co-founder of Tigera, Inc, and the original
architect of Project Calico.  Before devoting his life to making cloud
networking simple and secure, he gained plenty of practical experience
in how it was not ever thus, designing and running several OpenStack
clusters, and architecting some of the earliest SDN solutions at Big
Switch Networks.

He also ran architecture at two large carriers (Telstra - AS1221, and
Cable & Wireless/iMCI - AS3561), spent time in Asia as the IP CTO for
Alcatel, and run networks in Antarctica (hint, bend radius becomes
REALLY important at -50C). In his spare time he was foolish enough to
do two stints as a working group co-chair in the IETF. Occasionally
you can have the (mis-)fortune of hearing him speak at conferences and
the like.
